For a new 200a straight forward service we get closer to $2000. We put the panels inside here. Some places you can pay $200 just permits, fees, and bonds. For 2 sticks of ridgid it is $50. Yo did not put in anything for the ground system. I think you need a few more lock nuts and bushings. No straps for the mast. I herd the service price was $10 an amp orer 20 years ago. Whats going on?

Active, Thanks for the reply. The list of materials came from another website. This is what the CO-OP charges for a 100 and 200A service on a 30' pole INSTALLED.
If I do a meter loop I use:
Meter base with hub, PVC nipple with 2 male adapters, locknut and bushing and a HUB for the main panel. There is only ONE locknut required for this type of install. The one that connects the panel to the meter base.
Grounding? Yeah they left that out..it is an underground install...
Thanks for pointing that out. You have an eye for detail!
Myself I charge what I think the job is worth..if I don't get it, I thank them for calling, wish them luck and tell them to have a good day.
thats the beauty of america, you can charge whatever the market will bear!
thanks again for the replies...very interesting.
