    Your local Tesla store should be able to provide you with recommended electrical contractors in your area. When I ordered my Model S I was given a list of three local recommended electricians (in Central Florida). I contacted all three and requested a quote for installation of a NEMA 14-50 receptacle in my garage. Two of the three recommended electricians came to my home and provided me quotes. The third one never responded to my inquiry. The two bids I received were $850 and $885. This included parts, labor, and permitting with my county. The installation took about 90 minutes with two electricians working on the project (running wires through the attic then down a concrete block interior garage wall with aluminum conduit).
