  • Do you currently have power service with Summerside Electric?
  • In what name should the electricity go?
  • Who will be paying the utility charges?
  • Who is your electrician?
  • What is the physical location of the service?
  • Is the lot staked where the building will be?
  • Will you need both temporary and permanent services?
  • What type of service are you setting up?
  • Are you going to have electric heat? 100 or 200 amp service? Single or 3 phase?
  • Are you having overhead or underground power lines?
