I don't know whether it's good or bad, but here in Finland we get three-phase
electricity to just about everywhere. So everything big is connected to it,
not single-phase - the max. I have in my house is 16A (230V) single-phase,
but the stove is 3*16A three-phase, for example. Of course a dirty way of
getting three-phase here is just figure out how the wall sockets are wired,
which is live and which is neutral and then just find a plug each of each
phase. The downside to this is that you don't get a lot of current in each
phase, so the max. (easy) amount of power is 3.7kW, which of course could
be tripled if I could find out how to utilize 3-phase in a TC. And I guess
that will be asking for trouble, i.e. too hard to do in a simple, low-cost
