I get delivery of my car next Friday and still don't have my outlet installed :( I had called SolarCity over a month ago and they quoted $599 over the phone, but then later said they didn't have availability and referred me to Mr Electric. After they came by, I got a quote for $1020. The panel is in my garage on the left hand side, in a perfect position.
Although there is a minor complication in that every switch is currently occupied, Mr Electric told me that would be easy to fix by simply teaming up a couple rarely used items, such as "Iron" and "Vacuum". You can see our panel here:
I've seen quotes on this board as low as $300 in some areas, but because different cities have different costs for permits and such (I'm in Portland) it's not easy to compare apples-to-apples. But $1,020 seems WAY overpriced compared to what I've read on this forum, even from other Mr Electric locations.
Has anyone else had to pay that much, and what was the complication that led to it? Was it as simple as mine? Conversely, did anyone have to rearrange their panel a little bit and what did it do to the cost?
