Everyone can type your questions here or raise your hand and we will call on you.
How did you select the brand of charging unit when you started? Maybe you you can recommend a few manufacturers
How do you get in contact with Tesla. We have been trying for months and have not had any success.
Same here, no luck contacting Tesla, no response
Has anyone successfully addressed the issue of portability to move between jurisdictions doing this work? For example, on state DOT work.
Do you find that open source EV systems our rapidly growing in Corporate installations VS public charging systems?

NEC 210.20(A) Continuous Duty application. 125%
could you discuss the communications needs of chargers
48 amps x 125% = 60 amps. Just an FYI.
At the bare minimum you need to size molded case breakers keeping in mind that they are only continuously rated for 80% of the load. Meaning, at bare minimum you typically want to take the full-load amperage and divide it by .80 to size the breaker. Depending on the manufacturer's design, they may suggest an even more upsized breaker.
Ian Hoppe - Condoit
Specified breaker sizes are usually listed on the EVC cut sheets.
Who is talking/speaking now?
SemmaConnect rep tells me that currently there are no Buy American DCFC units that qualify. manufacturers are asking for waivers..
Dave - I have no horse in the game, but it looks like Trilium understands the need for manufacturing DCFC units in the USA to meet said Buy American requirements.https://electrek.co/2022/08/23/tritium-first-charger-manufacturing-facility-united-states/
Need an electrical permit in Rhode Island and Massachusetts when installing an EVSE.
Excellent source of knowledge is the clean cities organizations in each state, Wisconsin clean cites is the department of energy group here, very good partner
All, I am the channel manager from ABB E-Mobility. Not to plug, but if you would like perspective from the manufacturing side. Feel free to ping me on this call.
Are we seeing or anticipating any supply chain issues with charging station equipment, especially as all of this federal money for EVSE is distributed?
Joelle, I am sure there will be some issues.
@BrianMorales Can you provide customer financing on both commercial and private work?
Sorry, I've been on the call on and off....this may prove useful.https://poweringchicago.com/ev/
@Brian... Have you found a good financing option without giant contractor fees?
We have been very successful on residential installs using a questionnaire sheet and requesting pictures to speed up the quoting process and save a trip to quote the install.
Thanks for all the information and time
