I recently spoke with a representative at PSEG Long Island about the list of approved "network-enabled" EV chargers included in their $500 rebate program. The list currently includes:
ChargePoint Home, CPH-25
ChargePoint Home Flex, CPH-50
Clipper Creek HCS40 (JuiceNet enabled)
Siemens Versicharge SG
The representative said it's up to Tesla whether or not they want to participate in their program. I see that Tesla participates in similar programs from other utilities outside New York. Does anyone know the best way of reaching out to Tesla about this? Currently I'm using a NEMA 14-50 outlet and the mobile connector to charge, but would love to have a dedicated charger (ideally Tesla's wall charger to use the cool charge port open button!)
Now that the new version of the wall charger supports WiFi I'm hoping it could be considered a "network-enabled" charger. I'd guess this program would get more buyers to get their charger over one of the other brands so it would seem to be beneficial for them, unless there's some downside I don't know about.
Anyone else currently a PSEG Long Island customer and interested in finding out more about this as well? Hopefully we can get some idea if Tesla will participate in the PSEG program soon.
