It will be about $2,000 for the aero-fairing and $2,000 for the chargers ($1,000 times two)

I'm looking at 2 Elcon PFC2500 chargers. They can do 15 amps each at 240V (but also run at 120V!) which would be 30 amps/240v, which pretty much maxes out a public EVSE J1772 station. (This is what was used on the electric Zero in the KICK GAS film.)

The fairing is a "kit", meaning that it's several pieces, and I have to figure out how to mount it (which can take time, be a little complicated) and build a tail.

It's the same fairing as Terry Hershner has on his cross-country Zero.
