The county said "Na-uh, no 600A but 400A is fine".
He requested 400A 3p 240V service and everything was moving forward until today.
Today a different PG&E engineer calls him and states, "If you want 3p you need to get an easement across the county road and we'll have to trench the county road, dig up your neighbor's yard for 30 feet then tear up your driveway. But if we stick with 1p we can just up-the-drop coming to your place and you can use a rotary phase converter."
This sort of feels like a brush-off play but maybe there's some rational reason for the radical difference between 1p and 3p upgrades. Anyone got any logic for this?
