    I priced out a lighting project for a customer of mine and I wanted to compare prices to make sure I was competitive. He has an existing system that is old and wants all new fixtures and cable installed ( many cuts and freys on the old one). The materials are as follows:
    - 4 Antique verde pathlites 22w each
    - 22 Wall lites for uplighting trees
    - 12 Magnaliters for shooting across the driveway
    - 1 1200 W transformer
    - 250' 8-2
    - 320' 10-2
    - 200' 12-2
    - Wire nuts and other installation addons
    - Tunneling for sleeve under driveway

    All lights are by Nightscaping and transformer is by Cast. Total for the materials is $2642.00. Project is in neighboring town 15min. away. What would you bid this as? Thanks all.

    I would be in the $200 - $250 per light fixture for a job this size, including all wire, transformers, etc. So say $10,000 - $12,000 depending on some of the difficulty factors. I'm not familiar with those driveway light your referring to, but I assumed they were similiar to a regular fixture.
