MECS can upgrade your existing single-phase service to a three-phase service, whether you have an aerial or underground service. We will supply and install the new cables, source the new energy meter(s) you will need from your Energy Supply Authority, and carry out any necessary upgrades to your switchboard. If you are not ready for a three-phase service but are planning to upgrade in the future, we can upgrade your service and consumer mains to three-phase and leave a single-phase service connected.
WHAT IS THREE PHASE POWER?
A single-phase service has two cables; a three-phase service has four. This allows you to run both single-phase equipment at 230V and three-phase equipment, such as large air-conditioners, lathes and heavy electrical usage devices at 400V.
WHAT’S REQUIRED TO UPGRADE TO 3 PHASE POWER
If you have a single-phase supply, your service mains and consumer’s mains will consist of only two cables. Also, your energy meter will only meter a single phase. In order to upgrade, both your service mains and consumer’s mains will need to be replaced. You will need to have a new three-phase energy meter installed, and you will need some alterations made to your switchboard.
We will only collect few details about you and the details of the job.
