I know that this has been discussed may times on here so I am sorry to bring it up again but I need some local pricing for installing a 200 or 100 amp service upgrade. The company that I work for is in NJ we service central and northern NJ. Our current prices for service upgrades are 3522.00 for a 200 and 2663.00 for a 100. I feel that these prices are a little high themselves but I can sell them for the most part. The company now wants to raise them to 4353.00 for 200 and 4256.00 for 100. I feel that these numbers are outragious and that they will price themselves right out of bussiness. You may be able to sell one or two a year but I do not see more than that happing. I would like some other prices from NJ if possible to bring to my owner for support in my argument. These prices are for a service using SEU cable the prices for 2" and 1 1/4" pipe are even higher. The installs include everything from the service head down: new service drop, new meter pan, new jumper, new 200 amp 40 circuit panel, new ground to cold water pipe, two ground rods installed, jumpers on the hot water heater and the water meter, and filing for the permit the home owner is still responsible for the permit fees. In NJ we do the tie in to the poco live and the poco does not rebug what we install stays for good PSE&G and JCP&L anyway. Any input would be appreciated.

Those prices seem to be close to double to what contractors get around me. Whats in a typical one meter 100amp service 8 to 12 hours at most, (some can be a couple hours less) Three or four hundred dollars of material.
