    In Charlotte, it was $300. Just saying.

    You could check Angie's List if you don't get a better answer here.

    Nick Athan did mine. He's in Cary/Apex. You can search here, someone just posted his contact info.

    I am also going with Roy Electric. $400+tax. The electrical panel in my garage is full, so having to pull wire from the outside electrical panel next to my electrical meter.

    I paid $1200 for the run and whole house surge protector. That being said it was that much because the panel in my garage was too full to put in an 50 amp circuit and they had to run it from the service drop and it was almost 200 feet under the house (of course the service is on the complete OTHER side of the house). I used wiretech recommended by Tesla's website.

    That is exactly what my electrician is going to do on Friday (without surge protector) – my panel is also on the opposite side of the house. He quoted $400, but I guess we will see what happens then...
