The difference between Residential and Commercial?

A residential electric service is a service supplied to a residential customer living in a single family dwelling unit for domestic purposes only and when all the electric service is supplied through one meter. If a portion of the electric service supplied to a dwelling is used for nonresidential (non-domestic) purposes, the customer can arrange his wiring so that the electric service for residential and nonresidential purposes can be separately metered.  Only family dwelling units for domestic purposes qualify for Residential Service. All other services shall be considered Commercial


Note:  All service agreements, except for temporary or short-term service, shall be for a term of five years or longer unless permanently terminated by the customer. At the expiration of such term, unless the agreement contains a definite extension provision, the service agreement shall be automatically extended indefinitely until canceled by either party. Applications for temporary or short-term service shall be accepted when MMU has capacity available at the point of delivery and in accordance with the provisions of the applicable service schedule.
