A Load Comes off...
We have been waiting for quite some time for Hydro Québec to connect us tot he grid. In fact we were becoming a bit concerned as just about everything else left to do required heat, and for heat we needed electricity.
Our electrician set up 4 outlets for us, so that once connected we would have access to electricity immediately. He installed two 120-volt and two 240-volt outlets.
