Most people would have issue with the cost of the electric real, however you seem to be mainly concerned with the cost of adding electric sockets in determining if electric reels are "worth it." I don't get that, but if wiring is your only concern..then yes electric reels are worth it.
I find them mandatory, but you can certainly kitefish with a non-electric reel. I don't see why you would if you're only concern is wiring an outlet.
