Thanks for posting....Just signed my contract with them for $1,500 to install and just paid the new $150 design fee. I have a Lariat Extended Range so hoping to get this bad boy installed soon since my build week is 5/9. Will keep you posted on when I hear next steps....Spoke with SunRun and they're trying not to schedule anyone for installs until you get an actual build date.....

Bet a local electrician can significantly beat that pricing. Sunrun probably have a catalog price that covers the worst case scenario. Most of us could have a moderately easy installation for the full backup scenario.

So disapointed in this; I have an electrician friend who will install mine for parts costs only. I was hoping to have the station installed before delivery. I'd be happy to increase my deposit to cover the cost of the station.

Hey @PACSMAN would you consider getting a different charging station so it can be installed before your delivery?
I'm not pacsman, but if they had a fcsp delete option I would consider a different charge station. I already have two EVSEs in my garage, but because it is included I will add the fcsp so that I have the faster charging option. This also lets me setup charging in each garage bay and outside next to the garage (two car garage, two EVs, one PHEV) . What would be great would be if my electric company could use the data from the ford fcsp to adjust my bill, the same way they do with the two Flo X5 home chargers.

No, not really; I'm already paying for the one that's included in my order. I just think if you're not going to use Sunrun that you should have the option of getting it before your truck is delivered. My build week is 5/2 so it's getting close.

My solar company is running the line beforehand so it’ll be ready for my Lightning. My blend date it 5/8. If the charger is with the truck they’ll connect the wiring to it and mount it. If not I’ll use a charger they installed in my shop until the FCSP is here.
For those with solar, The Walbox unit allows you to prioritize the power you are generating off your roof, reducing the credit inequity from the power company. Over time, this really adds up:

Do you already have a 200 amp or larger electrical feed to your home? I guess there also needs to be a permit pulled to have the installation inspected. If you don't have a 200+ amp feed, they will need to upgrade your home to a 200 or 300 amp system before they can install the new charger.

Good luck with all of that!

My suggestion is to buy a "Travel" type charger, such as this one for about $175. You can get adapters to plug it in at friend's homes, into the dryer receptacle, or if they have a electric stove and a long power cord, you could plug in there as well.

Just cut off the Europe factory plug and install a 50 amp stove receptacle end on the 240 volt wiring. Then get a 30 amp dryer cord, and connect a surface mount 50 amp receptacle to that, and use it for an adapter if you are at a friend's home.

This charger can be set to have a 16, 20, 32 amp input power. So you can adjust to the plug type that you are using.


Good luck!

So you are just suggesting using the mobile charger that Ford gives you?

I would want to at least get the conduit and perhaps wiring installed before the charger arrives. In Portland Oregon, it can take a week or more to get a electrician to install a 240 volt outlet for a new air conditioner or heat pump. Better to find out that you might need to upgrade a 100 amp service to a 200 - 300 amp service now, so the slow wheels at the electric company can start rolling now, not 3 weeks after you buy your new truck.

Also consider a "Travel Charger" that you could plug into a friend's home. They are not all that expensive. You can cut off the European plug and install a 50 amp stove plug (home depot $18) and then buy a dryer cord and 50 amp surface mount receptacle, so that you could plug into a electric dryer receptacle at a friend's home.


And the total cost for this adjustable charger is only $175.
