Question DetailsAsked on 11/5/2013

how much should it cost for an electrician to install new outside panels switching my house from 100 to 300 amps

I am putting in a pool and needed to upgrade the power coming to my house from 100 to 300 amps and had to install a new panel outside where meter goes, a disconnect panel for the 100 amp, and a disconnect panel for the additional 200 amps to bring it up to new code. He also installed a breaker panel (no wires/not live)for the pool and poolhouse I am building.

Not including the cost of the new supply lines installed by the power company and their other charges you should expect at least $1200-1500. The price really depends on the cost for permits in your area and any specified equipment by the utility company. Many utilities require certain brands and types of panels which drives up cost. Of course, you'll need to factor in extra for the lines and connections to the new equipment.

I am not at all certain, but I get the feeling Todd's number may have been for the new 300A main service and meter only - not for the service, meter box, two disconnects, a new run from disconnect to poolhouse, and a new 200A breaker panel with breakers - that sounds to me more like a $3000 range job.
