I learned from the utility company that there even if three-phase is at the pole the costs could still be high. For example, I would have to pay the labor fro them to install a transformer and a service line to the house. Then I have to hire the electrician to get it into the house so I could plug the dryer in. I think that will start to get expensive, perhaps in the 2-3k range. It might make sense if I were doing a laundromat. But 2-3k (if that's accurate) is a bit high to be able to plug in a dryer. Do you guys think my estimate is close?
