Whats the going price on old working in recessed lighting per can in your area? I keep on hearing different numbers with large spreads between them by me, so why not ask the world wide crew here :-) Thanks for your help. Please state if it includes the fixture or not in your number.

For me it would be $150.00 per light, average installation including 6" can, white baffle trim, and 75 par 30 flood lamp.

We are at about $125 per recessed including the fixture and lamp. I'm thinking about raising it quite a bit soon. Some of the General contractors I work for are charging the customers $250 each, so it looks like I'm leaving tons of money on the table.
