    Hi all, I just ordered a MS (first EV ever), so I will need to have installed the NEMA 14-50 outlet soon in the garage. On the "find an electrician" page on the Tesla site it links to a company that does not serve my area. Does anyone have experience with an electrician in this area? I would like to find someone that does good work at a fair price, not sure if I should just pick random local electricians, get some estimates and hope for the best? TIA

    Be sure the outlet is wired to a 50 amp breaker with proper gauge wiring (6 awg copper) as it will be pulling 40 amp continuous not just peak and requires the overhead.
