I hate to be a party-pooper but if the Fisker Karma is not one of the cars supported by this program, which from a quick view of the website, it is not...nuff said?

Please recheck the website. It's listed www.chargepointamerica.com. You must live in one of the 10 regions of the program.

In the San Francisco Bay area, the Fisker Karma is one of the eligible cars.

I was referring to this page which does not list the Karma:
http://chargepointamerica.com/program-info.php
But I see that this page does:

Thanks guys, I just completed my order with Coulomb Tech for a free EV charger since the greater NY area is one of their approved locations for a Fisker Karma. Their model CT 500 is top of the line check it out. This is a legitimate offer you should all investigate the offer.

When they provisioned my station, they did it as if I had a BMW. I guess I was the first karma on their network and the network isn't ready for karmas

What was the cost of your install? I am still waiting for them to send me the quote..

They are asking for me to have SCE install a separate meter for charging... seems kind of extreme.

what did they do on your install?

RSM is close.. we should cruise to cars and coffee this Saturday.

For my install they added a breaker, ran ~ 30 ft of conduit and anchored the charger to the wall. The only thing I paid for was the city permit.

As far as a second meter goes, you could get the cheapest rates from SCE for charging your vehicle if you had a second meter. If you don't do that at least look into the electric vehicle time of use plan. It could save you money depending on when you use the most energy at your home.

Cars and coffee sounds good as long as it doesn't rain!

We are in the Orlando area,received the charger from EV Connect Chargepoint at no charge, though did have to pay for the installation ($620.00) We already had 220V outlet in garage. Includes free Chargepoint access to all stations - suggest getting the App on your phone. Huge difference using the 220V compared to 110 - would highly recommend installation to all. Try [email protected] or 800-465-0497 to get information.

Sadly, the program for free chargers from ChargePoint has ended. I just spoke to a representative who said that the program ended yesterday.

Hey, did you get hosed for installation? It seems you have to go with their installer -- and, the first quote was $2200. It titrated down to $1205 when I agreed to it, and this is with the $600 rebate. An licensed electrician agreed to do it for $1000, but I couldn't use him. You or anyone else have this problem??

Yes, I had installed a ChargePoint charger from EV Connect. The charger was free and it cost $950 to install. (should have cost about $500). They do admit they overcharge as I pushed them on this point. I do like it though. It feels like a sturdy charger and has worked very well thus far (3 months).

They sent me a quote which said 8 hours at $100/hr for installation. The actual installation took 2 hours, so I'm asking what they're going to do about the overcharge. The right thing for them to do is adjust the quote accordingly. Otherwise, it sounds like people are systematically getting overcharged.

I am in Southern California and was approved. It is being installed next week. The thing you have to look out for with them is that you are required to use their installer and the first quote was a total hose job. I had already had the job bid out by a couple electricians on my own and it wasn't even close. I told them that I would spend a couple hundred more to buy my own unit and have it installed then to get a "free unit" and pay twice what the installation should be. Yes my bids were with licensed electricians that were going to pull permits. Anyway, it took a bit of doing and a could harsh emails but they finally came back with a reasonable offer... I hate people that do business like that.... BEWARE!

When were you approved? I put in my application last month, after they bugged me for the application for two months, and then I was told the "free" chargers were no longer available.
