3-phase electric supply
A 3-phase electrical supply is a requirement for larger businesses with high level electrical usage and higher energy requirements such as data centres, commercial kitchens, HVAC systems, arenas and stadiums and manufacturing. It’s highly efficient, and often industry specific machinery and equipment will be specifically designed to run on 3-phase power only. A 3-phase supply allows for smaller, less expensive wiring and lower voltages, making it far safer and less expensive to run within a commercial environment.
With a 3-phase meter installation, you can measure the electrical consumption in Kilowatts per Hour (kWh). Typically, a 3-phase supply will have up to three meters or a single large meter. The meter has cables which are wired directly into it. Since 3-phase electric meters are more powerful than single-phase meters, they are ideally suited for large, commercial buildings.
