Have you ever heard of the term "three phase and single phase meters"? If you have applied for a meter service from ECG, my guess is that you might have heard of these terms. But what are three phase and single phase meters? And what are the differences? I am sure you must be wondering why you must even care, after all, all that you need as a customer is a service. However, it is worth having an understanding of the types of services ECG provides, and which one will best meet your need. I would say you need this understanding even before you get your house or property wired by a qualified electrician.
It is very important, since the three phase and single phase terminologies are not just words but in most cases have financial implications. The type of wiring in your residence or a commercial property could be meant for a three phase or single phase connection. Knowing the kind of connection you actually need beforehand will save you some unnecessary expenditure. Let me try and give it a shot without sounding too technical.
