We just placed our order for our first Tesla and we have inquired with a local electric company for converting 2 standard outlets to a 14/50 outlet. The estimate came back at $600 ($200 for material and $400 for labor). From all of the video's I've seen, that seems high. The panel is next to our 2 car garage and inside our house. The wires are run through the attic and accessible. What are other people paying for the conversion?
$305 for nema 14-30 and 14-50 both installed right next to panel in garage, estimate less than 6’ of wire. Included moving stuff out of the way and repairing drywall between sockets and panel when done. 2 new Breakers, 1 for each. This was licensed electrician from electric company, not handyman who also does electricity. It’s a lot for an hours labor, but as others have said, parts and getting to me aren’t free and burning my house down or killing myself are significantly more expensive. ImAt $300 estimate I did not bother with another quote.
I am not certain about the permit. We live in Florida so..... We did have a reputable electrical contractor come out and do the work so I would assume that the work is up to code.
anyone in seattle area with recommendations? got a couple quotes, all ranging $900-1100 for a nema 14-50 outlet. (includes permit).
