That's very common in Sweden too. Every house is fed three phase power,
since most electric stoves, as you say, use either two or three phase
power. Heck, for that matter, even rent apartments have three phase

My electric bill is about $80 per 3 months, and that's with my puter on
24/7, two aquariums, plus all the rest day-to-day things like TV, lights
and such. That's without any powersaving bulbs...
