money tied to certain charging vendors, but there’s enough different grant
programs that the Nissan QC will probably be allowed in one or more of the
grants. There will also be some negotiation on availability of the Nissan QC

Nissan QC may be fairly flexible in terms of input voltages (208 VAC 3
phase, 480 VAC 3 phase, maybe single phase?) but we won’t know for sure
