To connect a new electricity connection we’ll need to work on the electricity cable which is usually underground. On your land, digging a trench will be needed to lay the new electricity cable in. We can do this digging for you or you can do this yourself. We’ll provide the black tubing (ducting) which needs to be placed inside the trench. On the day, we’ll lay a new electricity cable and run it to where you want your electricity meter to be. Don’t worry, we’ll talk you through it all before we arrive. To prepare for this, you will need to make sure the following are completed:
To connect you to electricity we’ll find the nearest electricity cable to you, this is usually in the road or pathway where we’ll need to dig a large hole. From the hole in road or pathway, we’ll lay a new electricity cable and run it to where you want your electricity meter to be.
Your electricity supplier needs to visit to connect an electricity meter. To get electricity into your home, the company you pay your electricity bills to, needs to visit your home on the day we complete the work. They’ll need to install a new electricity meter in the meter box, as they own and are responsible for this piece of equipment. You need to arrange this on the day we complete our works, so you can have power.
We understand that this is a complex process. Have a read through the common questions that customers ask us and if you still have questions we can arrange for one of our team to call you.
The next step is booking an appointment with one of our surveyors so they can visit your property and give you a price.
