Large power requirement (above 1 MVA)

0800 029 4280

Usually you need this service if;

  • You are applying for more than 4 single phase electrical connections
  • You need more than 1 three phase connections over 70kVA (100a)
  • You are supplying premises with more than 4 metering points
  • The meter position is more than 43 metres from the nearest main (likely to be in the footpath)

Factors that may impact on the start of works:

  • Gaining legal consents before we can programme our works. For example we may need to negotiate consent from other landowners before we start work. This process can add extra time but we will let you know how this may affect your project
  • Applying for permission under the Traffic Management Act. This will occur if we need to undertake any works on the public highway. We will let you know how this may affect your project.

What next?
1. Enquiry & Application

To start the process, we need to provide you with a budget estimate or a formal quotation. For this we need to understand details of your project for example, the types of equipment you’ll be using and when you need power.
2. Assessment & Design

We will assess your application to ensure that we have all the information needed and we will contact you for any missing details. Once your project has been designed we will email you an offer or send in the post if required.
3. Acceptance & Payment

If you wish to accept the offer, you need to do two things; 1. Sign and return the acceptance form. 2. Make Payment - your payment and acceptance form must be with UK Power Networks before 5pm of the offer expiry date, otherwise your offer will lapse.
4. Project delivery

Your project will be sent to our delivery team who will provide you with their contact details and allocate a field engineer to manage and deliver your project. This engineer will be your point of contact throughout the work.
5. Install metering

Please be aware that we don’t supply any electricity meters. To arrange for a meter to be installed so the electricity connection can be utilised, you will need to appoint an electricity supplier (please note that you can appoint any electricity supplier that you like).
