Electrician familiar with Tesla in Southern California?

Does anyone have a referral to an electrician in Southern California who installed 240 in your house or garage that is NOT the one referred by Solar City? We are trying to get a comparative quote and would appreciate your help.

Thanks,

I would think you could just call any electrician. Installing 240 is a trivial exercise for anyone in the business. (It's also easy enough for any reasonably skilled amateur, if the local authorities don't stand in your way.)

Installing 240 is exactly the line of demarcation for DIY repairs IMO. I would never recommend this.

Big wires, big amps, big trouble. Read up on something as simple as pulling a meter! I used to do this all the time until I found out the dangers. No wonder my old boss always made me do it. Guess I wasn't such a valuable employee when I was young. Never, ever again.

You had better hope the building inspector stands in your way in this instance. I have circumvented them before, I confess, but would not for this procedure. BTW, if you have the utility cut the power they won't always turn it back on without a signed-off inspection.

The risk/reward ratio is 'way off in this case, not at all worth it. If you can afford a Tesla, you can afford to pay somebody who knows what they are doing. This is not a slumlord rewire project.

what area are you in? Call Mr. Electric
