Electric car home-charger options

sites/greenknowe.org/files/votesolar.jpgIf you buy your car home charger through Nissan's program, you must use one of their installers.  Their minimum price with installation is around $2500, which can be excessive if you only need a little bit of electrical work done.

Another option would be to buy your own home car charger from Leviton:

With this unit, all you need to do is have an electrician install a standard 240V outlet, which is likely to cost you a lot less than $1500 if your charger location is close to your electric meter.
