    PS. Alas no HPWC until Nov.
    I had solar city at the house today. Matt Markum, same guy Robert had I believe? Very nice, moderately knowledgeable - referred a little too often to PowerPoint slide prints tesla had provided. I knew more about tesla, supercharging, the HPWC than him. But he was indeed nice and patient and smart. Will speak with Walter (see above) and decide how to move forward. Walter is sharp. Very like-able. Thanks again.

    This would be unnerving...When mine arrives it is going right into the shop for 2 days to add paint armor.
    That will be deadly...

    Happy with Phil Shea - 617 365 7432 is his cell. Let him know I (Ben Goodwin) referred you (regarding installing a plug for charging a Tesla Model S). He's excited to do more of these. Just make sure he understands your situation (I did a temp NEMA 6-50 with 100-amp capable wiring for HPWC; you might not want that).
    See my thread for details on my installation: My temp NEMA 6-50 install

    Thanks, Ben. I assume this guy is local to central Boston?

    He's about 30 minutes away (I forget where he said he lives). Has no problems coming out this way.

    Ben, my install is next week. Why a NEMA 6-50 and not a NEMA 14-50? My plan is to have a 100A capable wiring service a single NEMA 14-50, so later I can either add a second NEMA 14-50 (car two) or add a HPWC and twin charger in the Model S. Comments, please, PM me if it's a little complicated or specific. Much appreciated. I know you know this stuff - I know the Krebs Cycle instead - not helpful here.

    - - - Updated - - -

    And ShortArc - Walter was great but I have a special situation in town with a town meter/relay that will provide 5.5 cents/kWh off-peak, and having the local guy do it here makes sense. Will certainly bring Walter in for other work in the future.
