    Hi,

    I just ordered my Model S. I can't hardly wait!

    I just wondered if anyone could recommend an electrician to install the NEMA 14-50 plug in my garage. I'm looking for someone in the metrowest area. I live in Marlborough.

    Thanks!

    Highly, highly recommend Scott Mahaney, R.S. Mahaney Electric. [email protected], (617) 592-8227. He's in Marlboro. Tell him Greg from Monday night golf referred you.

    I'd recommend John Manning from Douglas MA. He did my NEMA 14-50 and other work for a bathroom remodel etc. Great guy and very reasonable.

    DM for his contact info if you want it.

    I wrote about my install experience here:
    Delivery Preparations | Tesla Living

    It cost me $675 but it can vary greatly depending on your infrastructure, where the plug is etc.

    Scott came this morning. I can tell he's very conscientious. Hopefully his estimate is good.

    Thnx for the recommendation.

    This morning Scott texted me a photo of a HPWC install he did, so he's got at least one under his belt (50A circuit, with a 50A breaker next to the HPWC as an emergency shutoff).

    I know a great electrician in the metrowest area. He has done a few installs in the Westford, Ma area. His website is Bob Prescott, Value Electric

    Yep. That's the install he did for me. Thanks for the recommendation. He did a great job. Since I'm not an electrician, I wasn't able to answer most of the questions he asked. He actually called Tesla to make sure he was following the recommendations. He wasn't the cheapest quote I got, but I felt like he would do a quality job. I'm glad I chose him.

    I'm getting ready to install a HPWC for my model 3.
    Does anybody have any updated recommendations for electricians in the area?

    Really any competent electrician can do the install.
