Estimates from Tesla recommended electricians were $600+ for a nema 1450 outlet install. My fuse box is already in the garage, and from what I’ve seen, that should Be closer to the $200-$300 range. Does anyone have any recommendations for an electrician in the Seattle/Kirkland area?

$600 is not completely unreasonable if the installer is using quality parts. The GFCI breaker will be $100-$150(!), an industrial(hubbell/bryant/cooper) outlet will be $75-100, and wire is $3-5 per foot. Don't forget the box, maybe conduit, and so on. Maybe even a permit.

$600 is pretty good. the tesla recommended electricians gave me quotes close to $1k and my box is just on the other side of the garage wall.
