Consumers Connection to the Grid

The service connection refers to the installation that connects the distribution network of a distribution company to the consumer units owned by the user, for both low voltage (LV) and mid voltage (MV).

It is owned by the distribution company and can be for low voltage (under 1 kV), single phase (two conductors) or three-phase (four conductors) and for mid voltage (over 1 kV), three conductors.

As far as its construction is concerned, it can be underground or overhead, depending on the type of distribution (underground is becoming increasingly more widespread in urban areas).
