Enmax Power Corporation (EPC) has revised its residential service standard from 100A to 200A to accommodate the increasing electrical needs of their customers.
Effective immediately, EPC will offer only 200A services for new residential customers in standard Underground Residential Developments (URD). This applies to all new projects for single family, duplex and fee-simple row housing developments. For projects underway, developers may choose to proceed with the current design or seek to revise. The ability to change from a 100A to 200A servicing will depend on the current stage of the project.
EPC wishes to advise all homebuilders, developers and consultants of the requirement to install 200A meter bases. EPC will continue to make their full investment in the provisioning of these 200A services.
Over the next several months, EPC will be modifying their technical standards and guidelines, as well as their Terms and Conditions to reflect this revised service standard.
Please note both 100A and 200A residential servicing will still be offered for non-standard URD as well as small residential (e.g. infills) and certain types of multifamily development (e.g. condominiums).
