200 amp service is the rating of electrical power available to your home. Older homes only had 60 amp service. Newer homes were updated to 100 or 150 amp service. The standard for most US homes today is 200 amp. You can find out what your service is by looking at the top breaker in your electrical box, it should be stamped on that.
