Outside wiring

I need to run a wire out to the pole so the electric company can hook it up.

My question is what type of wire am I looking at?
I have done wiring in a house but not from the box out.
I am thinking of puting it underground. Does that matter.
I guess I would use PVC pipe if I put it under.

Are there different types for underground or above?

Around here, the power company runs the wire to the meter base. You take it from there. In any event, you might ask the power company what wire they want.

This is going to be in Maine and I hope to have the meter put next to the pole.

Right now I am just trying to get an idea on price for wire so I wanted to know the type.
