  3. Alternate NEW Tax Credit Rebate

    I thought I'd take a swing at a different incentive structure than the current proposal. The current proposal is too complicated and has too many agendas tossed in unrelated to actual EV adoption. The current proposal basically has four main incentive sections: New EVs New 2 and 3 wheeled EVs...
  4. Battery Size and other speculation from the EPA numbers

    Some of this is scattered in other threads, but thought I'd start a new one. From the EPA data released, it looks like the nominal battery capacity is 144 kWh on both the R1T & R1S (400V nominal * 360 Ah) It looks like the useable/available capacity is very close to the original 135 kWh...

  12. Poll: Rivian Factory Delivery & Tour

    Long story short, Rivian is reaching out to reservation holders (somewhat randomly) to get their stories and why they chose Rivian. During our conversation, the subject of a Factory delivery option came up, and Rivian is seriously considering doing this. They would likely include a factory...
  13. 48A WattZilla products and NEC compliance

    Thought I'd break this out and start a new thread as questions have come up in a couple of other threads/forums as to their 48A products and NEC Article 625 compliance. The NEC code (2017 & 2020) limits plug-in EVSEs to 50A receptacles. Two products from WattZilla (WallWatts 48 and Black Mamba...
