Hi,
there is a lot of variables involved in bidding and selling electrical work..the material cost is probably pretty close all over the country..the biggest variables seem to be site conditions, labor and client.

In my area you could NOT get $4500 for a 200 Service new or upgrade!

The average price in NW Arkansas runs between $1000-$2000 for a 200A residential service.

-regards

Southeast Pennsylvania; this is what I 'average', price varies slightly depending on the mindset of the homeowner.

100A interior panel change only: $800
100A full service: $1400

200A interior panel change only; $1400
200A full service $2400

I get $1600 for a 100A and $2600 for a 200 Amp. That includes everything including a whole house surge protector installed out at the main.

When the panel is right on the other side of the meter I make out BIG, but when I have to run a SER cable I "earn it a little more". Either way, my prices stay the same.

One more thing:
I ALWAYS use aluminum conductors for service changes unless they specifically want copper. And I hardly ever use IMC or Rigid on a house! It's normally PVC unless I need the Rigid to support the service drop or something.
(You know, by CODE you could use #4 Cu for a 100 A residential service).

DAYUM! For $2600 I'll throw in a surge protector AND cook 'em dinner!

$1200-$1400 here, including inspection, and I'm in NY. Not know for it's low prices.

I can't see how anyone keeps the same price for a service. Doesn't seem fair to the customer. If I have to spend another hundred on materials the customer pays for it. If the job is cake the customer pays less.

Same thing here. Al URD and PVC, or SEU for risers. Typically PVC.
