I had a 60' run of 4-wire 240v with a 14-50 plug receptacle and 40-amp breaker wired for $500. It is a dedicated line for PHEV for lowest off peak rates between 11 pm and 7 am local.If you don't mind my asking, how much did the electrician charge you for the job, and how much wire did he have to run? I'm sure people are getting quotes all over the place for this, and it would be helpful for them to have a frame of reference.
That sounds reasonable. You always have to be careful, though. There are a lot of shady electricians out there who will rip you off in a heartbeat. A couple years ago I needed to have a new 240v circuit run from the panel on one side of my house to the other side of my house. I had a well respected local electrician come out, and he quoted me $3,480 for the job. That seemed a little ridiculous to me, so I had another guy come over that I had used in the past. He quoted me $470. Yes, that's right, the first guy was more than SEVEN TIMES higher.I had a 60' run of 4-wire 240v with a 14-50 plug receptacle and 40-amp breaker wired for $500.
