I know nothing about the credit but learned of a new device that could save you some installation expense.

MotorWeek today did a feature on the charging infrastructure being developed in the US. They mentioned the need for a separate 40A 220V circuit but then reported on a new device that can eliminate that. It piggybacks onto an existing electric dryer or range circuit. The device uses that circuit to charge the car but senses demand from the dryer or range and returns power to them whenever needed. Assuming you charge the car mostly overnight this could work without inconvenience.
