Did the $950 include the cost of the Chargepoint also?Yeah I went with the Q merit recommendation for a local installer, and the installer that showed up didn’t seem to know a lot. He said he did a tesla installation last week. I was worried at the beginning, but in the end he did a good job. Installation took about 4 1/2 hours and cost me 950 bucks
I had plenty of room in my 200 amp panel (Square D) so he added a 50amp breaker. He used an 8 gauge wire run about 30 feet to a leviton nema outlet. I bought the ChargePoint from Amazon with 25 foot line for 599.00 Amazon Services quoted $649 to install UP TO 5' from the panel. From 5' to 30' that installation price doubled! I wound up using Qmerit to solicit bids for qualified installers. I only had one bidder and was happy that they were only $850 for the 30' run.Would you mind sharing more details about your install? Did he just put a new 40/50A breaker in the existing panel? What AWG wire was used? Did the installation require a permit?
I've got a similar situation but will require a sub panel or a larger main panel and am considering doing a portion of the work myself.
It is in Wisconsin. In fact, the service line from the utility. Specifically from my electric utility meter that is outside of my house, to the 'inside' of my house is PVC conduit (I call it pipe sometimes). I used PVC pipe because it was cheaper, not necessarily better. I could run NM cable and not have used any pipe/conduit until things got exposed but the electrical engineering codes require you to use thicker gauge wire when using cable because of heat issues. So, it was more expensive for two reasons; more copper and they charge a 'premium' for the cable. It was cheaper for me to run individual wires inside conduit/pipe than to buy the cable. It wasn't easier, just cheaper.is pvc pipe "code" for a 240 line?
