Mains electricity

Electricity supply in Portugal is provided by Electricidade de Portugal (EDP).  Power provided by EDP is 220V AC, 50Hz single-phase or 380V AC, 50Hz three-phase.  This is the same as in most of mainland Europe and Africa.  It is different from that supplied in USA, UK, Ireland and most of anglophile Africa.  EDP normally provides connections to premises within 1-km of one of their transformers.  Owners of houses more than one kilometre from a transformer may request quotations for the installation of an additional transformer and a special line.
