Over $24K -Much Too pricey!

Give me a heads up when the price on the orca-mobile drops about 90% which is about how much nissan leaf prices will drop if they fail to figure out a fast and reliable infrastructure in the near future. Over $24K - Much Too pricey. Why would I invest in a level 3 charger for my company when I can convert the stock trickle charger to a level 2 under $300 and allow employees 8 of these converted chargers for about a tenth of the price of one orca-mobile charger? Hardware is not the only issue though. Electric rates are a major drawback as well since SDG&E averages 2-3 times the national average per KW hour. To give you an idea, my SDG&E electricity statement for 1300 kilowatt hours as of Sept. 28 2013 was a $449.00. That's right, nearly $450. Before the Leaf our rates averaged $120-$140 monthly. Just as a comparison, when I first started as a customer with SDG&E back in 1979 I was paying $15 monthly for both gas and electricity. Today I spend $15 daily! $500 is what I was spending at the gas pump 8 months ago for ExxonMobile to fill 3 vehicles monthly. Now we're spending that same amount on just one added Nissan electric vehicle to our household (80-84 miles daily). This winter we’re switching back to our 2012 Nissan Murano (as opposed to the 2013 leaf) courtesy of SDG&E. Given the slight decline locally in Exxon gasoline prices, it’s actually cheaper to drive the 6 cylinder 2012 Nissan Murano as of October thru Dec. 2013. Having serious second thoughts on this 2013 Leaf purchase because I failed to do my homework properly on rising utility rates where SDG&E averages 2-3 times the national average. Probably the most expensive KW hour rates in the entire country .... OUCH! And no I'm not spending an additional $30K on solar panels or $24K on a level 3 charger as if I wanted to double the price of this over- rated toaster in our driveway. 90-100 range is simply false advertising on Nissan's part (with zero help on added infrastructure).
