electrician recommendation for HPWC in phoenix?

Tesla website lists two "tesla recommended" electricians on their website; wondering if anyone in phoenix/Scottsdale has any experience with either of them? I'm looking to get a HPWC installed - just ordered my 90D and now I've got until "December" per the website to get my charging set up....

Castle Gate Electric and G&S Electric are the two that are listed on the Tesla website.

thx in advance,

I used Castigate in Tucson, and they did a great job, They had to do some special calculations to get the HPWC to not show an overload on my panel, I have a J1772 charger also since we have two EVs. Only issue I had with them was the trip charge, but that was fair, their guy had to come from Phoenix to Tucson, so that was an extra few hours of charges. They even came out recently and replaced the cable on the HPWC since it's under warranty with the car.

Castle Gate for sure.

I used Castle Gate (contact Ted) as well, but had a very long distance from my breaker box to the garage. They had to trench my front yard in the process, as well as pulling a permit with Phoenix. All-in, cost me just shy of 2 grand, but worth every penny to have the job done right, including having my yard and irrigation system put back the way it's supposed. Had a quote from another guy who wanted to run the conduit up through the walls of my house, through the attic, and then drop it into the garage. That quote was around $800 but did not include permit, drywall repair, drywall painting (in 3 separate rooms), etc. I understand that if your breaker box is on the outside of your garage and you have room for a 50amp then the cost is somewhere south of $750.
 
Thank you all. My company is an electrical contractor so I'll have a couple of my guys do the job but I was curious what others were fetching for it. We don't generally do residential but I can put my best guys on it and I am sure they will do great. Now we have to figure out if we want to go through the house, or stay outside to the garage. Decisions, decisions.
 
If anyone is looking for an electrician I'd like to toss in my recommendation for John Carney of AZ Charging Specialists (480.329.3803). We have 2 Model Ss but don't have enough power for 2 NEMA 14-50 outlets. Switching between cars was getting old so decided to get the HPWCs which can share the power. He did a great job at a great price.

I have an electrician in Phoenix who will swap out your entire electrical panel to a brand new 200 amp unit for $1500 (that is crazy cheap) or will run a 50 amp circuit to your garage for $300-$400 depending on length of the run.

He also does solar electrical for Solar City / Tesla which can be useful, too.
