Hi all, I live in Residence Bel-Air Phase II and I am hoping to get a Tesla charger installed at my parking space. I have been in contact with the Bel-Air Service Centre which emailed me to say that it is feasible to install an EV charger at my parking space and they have outlined the steps in order to complete a successful application. Mr. Szeto is the main contact for EV charger applications at the Service Centre. The problem is I just got my first quotation from one of the contractors recommended by Tesla and the cost is astronomical - $79K in total! The breakdown is $21,400 for "before meter" installation work and $57,600 for "after meter" work. Please the image below for reference. I am expecting 2 other quotations in the next week. I spoke with Mr. Szeto about the "insane" cost and he said one way to bring down some of the cost is to share the cost of the installation work and hardware in the main switch room with other owners who want to install an EV charger. (EV Power told me they are looking to do this.) Perhaps the cost of some of the cable runs/work can be shared as well? I guess it depends where the parking spaces are and where the closest power source is. It somehow seems the power source is only on CP2. My parking space is on CP1. With this post, I hope to make contact with the other 9 or so Bel-Air owners so we can work together to coordinate with the Bel-Air Service Centre and the installation contractors and perhaps the electric company to figure out the best way to bring down the cost of installing EV chargers at Bel-Air Phase I/II parking lot. I recognise that the cost of the installation depends largely on how long the cable from the power source to the parking space is but I hope that for most Bel-Air owners, the cost can somehow be brought down to around $20-25K. So calling all Bel-Air owners wanting to get a charger installed… Let's discuss here and perhaps meet up to come up with ideas and a plan. Should we all coordinate with just one of the electrical contractors (EV Power, Shun Hing, Chong Chi, etc) to get the best deal? Can we get them to bid on the work for installation of 10 or more chargers? Should we all wait until we hit a critical number of people who want an EV charger to have better bargaining power? Should we have Service Centre release the floor plans of the CP1, CP2, CP3 parking lots and identify all the power sources so we can make sure the costs quoted to us make sense? Thoughts? Let's connect!
