If they buy the $1000 or so meter center then their goes most of your take.

Owner is thinking how much can I squeeze out of these chicken screwers?

Wages only in Georgia I assume??

Lucky to get $2500

Default Yeah

Yeah, that's out the door with 6 - 100 amp mains. I was thinking about $3,200.00 but now I might rethink.

How do you even know where the old 100a panel feeds will line up with the new meter stack..

Those kind of hidden costs can be a deal breaker...

You can't alter the back of MP if KO's don't line up where needed..

Default I agree

I agree with that. We are going there monday to swap out a 100 amp main. I"m going to take exact measurements and open up old meter panels to get an idea before I give a price. I'm pretty sure the measurement is real close to identical.

I would figure splicing some or most of the feeders and would use insulinks due to the fact that they are a fraction of the price of polaris taps.

Yes, I would expect to pay anywhere from $1000 to $1200 for a small meter center like that. Not long ago they were $600 to $800 but, everybody has to eat.
