Electricity Connection FAQs
From start to finish a new electric connection is a 2 step process, the initial step is providing an accurate quote, which can take up to 4 weeks. This is due to communicating with various other parties to determine the scope of work that is required.
Once a quote has been provided and the work agreed the installation can take anywhere between 6 to 12 weeks. This time scale will vary based on the work that needs to be undertaken. The overall process could take linger if:
✓ No gangs are available in the area within the timescales
✓ The job needs any traffic management (if the new connection is coming from the opposite side of a road)
✓ Emergencies within the customers area take priority
✓ Reinforcements in the network to accommodate the new load
✓ Delayed payment from customer or signed acceptance
The cost of a new electric install can vary quite dramatically depending of the scope of work that is involved. Before we can provide a quote we require a completed application and a diagram of where the pipe will be laid (our team can assist you in this stage of the application).
Other factors that can affect the price are:
✓ Traffic management – you may have to pay a local authority fee if a nearby road needs digging
✓ Excavation work – you have the option to dig your own land to keep costs to a minimum
✓ If you need a new meter cabinet installing
If you wish to reduce the cost of a new electric connection, you can undertake any excavations and dig your own trench for the pipe work yourself. You will need to keep in mind that you only dig a trench on your own property.
The trench needs to be 530mm deep and 300mm wide, these measurements need to be precise and if they are inaccurate it can delay the process significantly.
