I paid $55 .... which is the minimum fee. But it should have been about $100. The way he 'reworked' my building permit application it would have been $79. He just charged me minimum because he said that the whole setup I installed is literally in one spot. He can check it all without moving his feet so he just counted it as 'one' and thus the minimum. I installed a sub-panel, NEMA 30, NEMA 50, NEMA 20, the EVSE and a Generac load shed device. Here's a blank permit app attached.

What? You have to pay a permit to replace a light switch?!?
Not to replace an existing one, but to install one where it didn't previously exist. But there are some examples where replacing an electrical switch would require a permit if it is not currently to code, but grandfathered, to which once you work on it you negate the 'grandfather' status ..... in these rare cases you need a permit. Not that anyone gets one. I've pulled 5 permits this year. One of which was the EVSE.

About $40 here in sunny SC (that鈥檚 South Carolina not SoCal) and homeowners can pull permits just like contractors. I pulled permits and did the inspections for my self install, which included an additional meter for preferred EV rates.

I installed my NEMA-14-50R for ~$70 in materials. It's to code with the exception that I still need to fasten the wire to the ceiling joist. I'll get 'round to it one of these days.
$70 in materials is great. I used about $250 o_Oo_O.. but I am 40A, (50A max) ready.
I purchased about 15' of 6 gauge which was about $100, metal flex conduit, metal box, metal hangers, and the outlet (almost 80), a 50 A breaker and some miscellaneous materials.

Where in SC do you get preferred EV rates and how much cheaper are they than std. rates? I'm in the Greenville area and I pay 13 cents per kWh std rate....
