My house data is old, from 2002, but it was about $1300 for our 1000 gal tank from Southern States. They had the best price at that time in our area. We already had excavation going on for an addition so the backhoe was onsite for the basement and the guy dug it and set the tank for me as part of that price. I bought the regulator and ran the line to the building myself. Interior propane line was run by the HVAC contractor.
The church install, also outdated pricing but interesting just the same, was in 2007 and was a package price. Included were three 1k gallon above ground tanks at the church/parsonage and a 500gal in ground tank at chapel, total installation of all lines and regulators as well as the initial fill of propane. I am going by memory but it was in the neighborhood of $12k. I tracked the price difference from what the leased tank price/gal was to the lowest fill price we were able to get each time I got it filled and we 'paid' for the tanks/install (subtracted out the cost of the initial propane fill) in 2012.
