How much power is required?

Most domestic houses with gas central heating need 70kVA (which is 23kW or 100amps) to operate.

Most domestic properties have this as standard. Running swimming pools, ground source heat pumps and electric heating could mean you need more.

To be entirely sure you are applying for the correct service, we recommend that you speak to a qualified electrician first who will be able to assess all the equipment you will be running and they’ll be able to determine how much power you need.

When will I need to upgrade an electricity supply?

Your electrician has told you that you need more power at your property.

You need more power because you are converting, extending a building or installing new equipment or machinery.

If your energy bill has an availability/capacity charge as well as an energy usage element and you are not using all of the available capacity, you may wish to reduce the agreed capacity to reduce the cost (this is typically for larger connections).

Did you know you have a choice?

Did you know you can seek competitive quotations from an Independant Connection Provider for many elements of the work involved in getting an electricity connection.
