This month’s query? How to move your electricity meter when fitting a new kitchen. 
We understand that for many of our customers the process of moving your meter can seem daunting. But don’t worry we are here to provide the advice and support you need to make it as straightforward as possible. It’s quite common for people to need to move their electricity meter because of home improvements. People often want to convert their downstairs cupboard into a toilet but their electricity meter is in the way. Or extend their house or add a conservatory and the electricity meter is in the way.

How much will it cost to move your electricity meter?
It depends on where you live and your specific case including whether you have an overhead or underground supply. Our application form will give you an indication of the costs involved.

How long will it take to move your electricity meter?
Typically it will take 6 - 8 weeks to complete the work once we’ve received payment, but if we need to work on the public footway or road it may take longer to obtain the necessary permissions from highway authorities. My advice is to apply as early as possible.

How to apply to move your electricity meter?
Once you have an understanding of the costs involved and are confident that you want to go ahead, all you need to do is simply complete our application form and send us the information we need.

Our top tips:
1. Get your application in to us as early as possible so that we can assess what needs to be done. By preparing ahead we can plan to get the job done as quickly and smoothly as possible.
2. Confused? Send me an email using this online form.
3. To enable us to accurately quote your work we need a clear plan showing where your current electricity meter is located and where you want it moved to. Include this plan with your application form.
