Make sure Sunwest is moving quickly on your inspection...sometimes, they need a friendly reminder
I concur. My install went quickly and smoothly, once I got it scheduled, which took a "reminder" email to accomplish (two weeks after the car was delivered). Then a week went by with no inspection, so I sent another email to Shawn at Sunwest asking if this was normal. No reply, so after another week I sent a second email. Received an apology the next day with an explanation that my electrician had been "called away with a family emergency." The inspection was scheduled the next day, and Shawn emailed me the permit and load calcs to show the inspector, along with the install manual and specs for the Blink unit (no operation manual or demonstration was offered during the install, which is OK, since I have already downloaded the manual from the Blink site and figure I can get any help I need on operating it here).
Now I am waiting for the 2nd meter install from SDG&E, which is supposed to happen within 48 hrs. We'll see. We will probably have 1200 miles on the car before it gets its first 240V charge since leaving the dealer.
