Home Electrical Power Description

Would it be possible to have 3 Phase wire at my house?

Understanding The Home Electrical Utility Power
Question: Hi!There, Would it be possible to have 3 Phase wire at my house?
Thank you

This electrical question came from: Ozgur , a Homeowner from Reston, Virginia

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Ozgur.
Ozgur, most if not all single family homes in the USA are fed with 120/240 volt single phase power. Three phase power is generally found at commercial and industrial areas, and the voltage is higher, such as 277/480 volt 3-phase. If you have equipment that requires 3-phase power then you may purchase  a power converter that will provide the 3-phase power.
