I need to have a home L2 charging option and any recommendation will be greatly appreciated.

Also, in case that you are not aware, Congress recently extended retroactively the tax credit for EVSE purchasing and installation (up to $1,000 for home and $30,000 for business) to include 2018, 2019, and through Dec. 31, 2020.

Jaguar recommends ChargePoint, but there are many other brands.
I received one for free from Jaguar and I love it. The app is very useful and can be combines the data from public CP chargers

I always recommend the ChargePoint Flex NEMA so it's easier to move it down the line.
The 25 foot so it can charge across the garage if needed

Bought Chargepoint Home Flex from Amazon in March when they had a 20% off sale. It just got delivered yesterday and installation was super easy. I already have an existing NEMA 6-50 outlet.

I have a Mustart charger - it's a no frills, basic charger that was recommended by other members on this forum.

I just noticed that I cannot find some of the old discussion threads.

Yeah I think the indexing didn't complete so searches give incomplete results. You may need to browse through the forums to find old threads :(

Thanks for the tax credit information. I wasn't aware of the credit for home installation.

Do you know if this (up to) $1,000 tax credit for home installs is based on the same 30% of the total, or straight up 1-1 credit up to that sum?

TIA.

Are you sure the tax credit isn't just for alternative fuels, not electric related?

It is clearly stated that EVSW purchasing and installation cost are qualified for tax credit but it seems only to be up to 30%. Still batter than nothing. Also many states have additional local incentives. Unfortunately, none in SC for me. Anyway, here is another link on that:

So if you fill out the IRS form 8911 it is rather straight forward. In line 1 of this form you insert the amount of the L2 charger + install (in my case $697 + $310) = $1007.00 Line 11 is 30% of this total =$302. Now the maximum that can be claimed is $1000.00. You then will enter the smaller of your 30% number or $1000.00. In my case I received a reduction off my total tax bill of $302. I waited for Turbo Tax to obtain the 2019 IRS form 8936 (Electric Vehicle Credit) and when that form became available the form 8911 was also in place.
