I know it's early, but any info on how soon they'll ship the Charge Station Pro? I've ordered an extended range Lariat, which the charger comes with, but... not sure how in advance I'll be able to make the install. Thanks everyone

Not quite sure how Ford is going to do this. I can't imagine they will send the chargers out for free to folks who have not yet purchased their trucks. Maybe they will require an additional "deposit" on the charger in case the truck isn't purchased?

Yeah that’s what I thought when I read it. Can’t remember if I read on a Ford page after ordering or on SunRun’s page. SunRun is showing more information on installation but it’s nothing in detail. But they make clear there will be additional costs for trenching, upgrading panels and so on.

I figure that charger will be in a box in the truck right along with the portable charger. Not without purchase of some sort would Ford ever let it go out early.

I'll go on record and say that this is probably the only year they bundle it. It will become an option. Pure speculation on my part, but I bet it is less than 20% of the buyers every truly hook this up for the backup power to the panel and likely not more than 70% ever even use it for charging. So many panels will never support the 100 amps for full charging and many/most will find they are lucky to squeeze a 50 amp - 14-50 plug out of it to be able to charge using the 32 amps out of the mobile charger or maybe use that 50 amps for direct wire to get 40 amps out of the Charge Station.

I don’t think this means getting it two weeks early but it’s the scheduling of installation or delivery within two weeks of your delivery. Get it scheduled, buy your Lightning and have it installed/delivered by your scheduled date.

Thanks, all. I literally had Sun Run installing additional solar at my house 2 weeks ago and their lead electrician on my job said they haven't gotten any info passed to them yet about the chargers or home back up. I think everything is coming out so quickly, even the people who should know, don't. I guess patience is truly a virtue... one I'm trying to learn.
