cost to run a power feed underground
I just fell off my chair when I received a quote from electrician for $1800 to run a new power feed to my septic tank. The run is 100' or so, 18" deep, about 6' would need to be dug by hand. 12/2 cable used. Connection to power panel in house.
I will get more quotes, but is there a rule of thumb for this? The cable machine will do most of the work for this job and I thought price would reflect that.
Am I out of touch?
