Most EVSE's that I have seen need a ground. The OpenEVSE runs about 3MA into the ground lead. As long as your ground is connected to the power companies ground then plastic pipe means nothing. You want the utility company ground for the EVSE to work.

EVSE's are one item that will not work on the older 2 wire outlets. You must supply a connection(ground) from the panel and utility company ground.
