Thanks, will do. I need to get a couple of quotes next, so will see what the difference is.
pete8314: I would still check this with a licensed electrician familiar with your local code requirements. My entire materials bill was $453. I had 40 feet of conductor in 1 1/2 conduit, 20 feet of wire from the load center to a junction box where it changed to conduit and conductor plus a new sub-panel and the wire and breaker and connectors. I am not thinking that I would have saved very much by installing a 50 Amp circuit.... again, I am not an electrician.
I also ran a 100amp subpanel to my garage and then a NEMA 14-50 outlet off that. This I can now easily run another outlet for my wife should she also get an EV.

It's similar to the HPWC vs. 40A charging arguments -- every case is different and if you have the money it doesn't hurt... but for some people it's an extra $300 or so.
