Quick Answers...

 

 

How does electrical service get to your house?

 
The service connection to your home may be overhead or underground. Overhead service is less expensive, easily accessible for maintenance, and can carry high voltages over long runs. Underground service is more expensive but is frequently used in high-density urban areas. The service cables are run in pipe conduit or raceways for protection and to allow for future replacement. Direct burial cable may be used for residential connections.
