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 would have been encountered these terms by now. But what do they mean and what is the difference? I am sure you must be wondering why you must even care, after all, all that a customer needs is a service. The bible says in all thy gettings get understanding. 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 three phase or single phase. Knowing the difference beforehand will save you some unnecessary expenditure. Let me try and give it a shot without sounding too technical.
