It must be one hell of a charger for over $700. Should get an extra 2 years on the battery warranty at that price.

I think it's a pretty nice unit. Lots of connectivity features. I thought the wall unit came with a 3 year warranty, but it does not impact the vehicle battery warranty. The charger in the vehicle controls the charging and protects the battery. The wall unit is just a fancy extension cord with extra internet capable goodies.

Oh, and you can include cost of the Ford wall unit itself (I don't think the installation cost too) in with the vehicle financing.

That price would make sense for getting an additional (extra) mobile EVSE cable. From what I've seen I think the hardwired version will be more than $700.

But..it is only 16amp rated. Don't spend that much money for a 16 amp line that will not have the capacity to charge at 25 miles per hour. Look at Clipper Creek: https://store.clippercreek.com/featured/16-amp-evse-14-50-plug NEMA 1450 only 16 amp for $395. You really want the capacity of 40amp or greater : https://store.clippercreek.com/feat...-EVSE-Charging-Station-25-ft-cable-NEMA-14-50

Yeah, that's it. But the off peak rate per kWh is around $0.08, so that's a bonus.

You could qualify for a $500 DTE rebate if you:
  • Purchase or lease an EV
  • Install a qualified Level 2 charger
  • Enroll in a year-round time-of-use (TOU) rate

Actually, OFF peak is $0.02/kWh.

Here is my last EV bill (which ended 3/20--right about the start of this whole virus madness) so it includes about 900 miles of driving or so:

This is for the Bolt in winter--I'd expect the Mach-E to be a little higher as it doesn't appear to be as efficient as the Bolt.

Note the distribution charges: they will get you ! LOL

It’s generally accepted that any charges based on your KWH usage should be included when stating the local rate. Hence his use of 8 cents off peak.

I was adding the $0.02 + $0.06 ---- but it looks like it's closer to $0.12 per kWh total all in. Very interesting, thanks!!
