A 350 amp service is not a standard service distribution. It jumps from a 200 to a 400 amp rated distribution equipment. The only way to obtain a 350 size service is to install 400 amp equipment and fuse it at 350 amps. The standard size home distributions in North America today are rated at 200 amps. The cost of the service differs through out the continent. Ask your local electrical contractor for an estimate on an electrical upgrade to the required service that you want.
