Saw this article from Siemens about their ConnectDER solution, where the home charger can tap directly into the home's meter, bypassing the electrical panel entirely. This would save me $5-7K, as my house was built in 1986 and only has 100a panel. I'll still have to get the electric company to increase the power to my house, but this would cut off much of my expense. It think this is an exciting option for home charging!

Thoughts?

I agree, it bypasses the need to tap into the main panel, and gets power from between the meter and main panel.

In my case, my meter is curbside, so wouldn't seem to be helpful. But if your meter is mounted in the side of your house near the main panel, it could meet the need.
