I don't have anyone to recommend, but maybe you could try Angie's List for a referral: Home

I see you have this and a thread about someone mounting your plasma as well.

Don't hire two separate people. You can hire a home theater installation company or person, who will do both. I don't have the information on the guy we hired, but he came with one other person and between the two of them they took our LCD from box, to fully mounted and wired through the wall, in 2 hours.

Angie's list is the best place to check. Look for home theater or home entertainment.

By code, homes are supposed to have an outlet every 8 ft.

Why not save $$$ and just get an extension cord?

good luck! Let us know what you find. We had a lot of trouble finding an electrician, and no luck at all finding a "reasonably priced" electrician. They even charge for estimates. One of the many little things we needed was an outlet behind the TV that I managed to mount above the fireplace by myself. I can't even tell you what it cost. The TV is now plugged directly into the outlet that is behind the TV. Two problems remain. 1) There is no surge protector for the TV now. Everything else is plugged into a surge protector but the TV is plugged directly into the new outlet. Problem #2.. Although no unsightly power wires I still have an unsightly HDMI cable (and some game console cables) running from the TV to the component stand. I have a plan for that, tho.

And my favorite electrician story... stop me if I have told this one before...
ok.. cliff notes version. Electrician is doing work at our house - wife is in the habit of finding little extra things for workmen to do, but this guy is strictly a la carte, as in everything we ask him to do we will get billed for explicitly. We had a burned out bulb at the top of our 18 ft ceiling, so wife asked if he could change it. He told us that just to take his ladder off of his truck would cost us $175!!!! So I bought a lightbulb changing kit (extension pole with attachments) from Lowes for $19.99.

If you hire a licensed electricion you will be paying about twice as much $$. A good odd-job or repair person should be able to handle this with no trouble. I would not pay more then $100 to have this mounted with new A/C outlet.
