    After goin round and round about the cost and finally paying up the new amount we were waiting for a call scheduling the power....

    No call so I called the Engineer and it was put in over a week ago!!!

    Hi Oz,
    if you don't mind me asking, how much is your underground lines per foot, and how much did you pay for your meter loop setup? Was wondering, because I've installed several of the underground meter loop setups, with a 100amp breaker and a few circuits for people building their homes, and was getting around 500 for material/labor...

    We paid $1100 for the underground power to be run for 800+ feet with the first 300 feet free.

    The temporary pole we have was given to us by someone Mrs oz works with,their house had just been finished and they no longer needed it.
