We understand that for many of our customers the process of applying for a new or altered electricity connection can be daunting. Don’t worry, we have all the help and advice that you will need to make it easier for you.
A budget estimate sets out a typical price for the works that may be required. However this is based on a desktop assessment only without any site specific conditions being taken into account. It may vary considerably from a formal connection offer. It is not capable of acceptance and does not secure any network capacity.
A budget estimate is provided free of charge. A formal quotation provides you with a firm connection offer that sets out our costs to complete all of the connection works and alternative options.
Unfortunately we can’t advise how much power you need. Please speak to an electrician or electrical contractor who can help you.
To understand whether your project is viable you could come along to one of our ‘Ask the Expert’ surgeries to talk through your plans. Alternatively if you are looking for an idea on price you may wish to apply for a budget estimate
An Independent Connections Provider (ICP) is an accredited company that is entitled to build electricity networks to the specification and quality required for them to be owned by either a DNO, such as UK Power Networks, or an IDNO.
An Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO) is an accredited company with a wider scope than an ICP. After building a local electricity network, it will continue to own the local network and provide maintenance and 24-hour fault repairs.
