    Solar America has turned out to be a bust, so I'm looking for a reputable electrician in the Cupertino area of Silicon Valley. Has anyone used someone they can recommend?

    AMZ Electric 925-216-8894. Did my NEMA 14-50 install and permit process. Very responsive, courteous, did quality work, etc. Highly recommended.

    I called AMZ last week after I saw spaghetti's endorsement. Real nice guy with a reasonable price on a complicated job. He's installing the HPWC next Monday for me.

    $800 for parts (wire, receptacle, quad 40/50 breaker) and labor for my NEMA 14-50 install. Around 60-foot run from the panel in the house, down through a wall to the crawl space, then to the garage in the crawl space, up through the wall in the garage, and then out to the receptacle. Additionally, due to space constraints in my panel, a dual breaker had to be replaced with a quad breaker. It was a complicated install.

    Huh. I just got off the phone with AMZ and he says I live too far away. I live in Cupertino near 280 and 85. Right near you guys... I guess he didn't want the job... So that was a total bust. :confused:

    Talked to the Voltz as well and they quoted me $900.00 and it sounds like they have pretty flexible scheduling. My car is being delivered on the 24th so I still have a little time. I'll probably go with them unless someone has a better suggestion.
