Expertise in coordinating electricity connections

Our in-depth knowledge of the UK’s energy market allows us to easily coordinate the implementation of electricity supply solutions you need with the minimum of fuss.

From start to finish, we can oversee every aspect of installing a new electricity connection including:

How long does an electricity connection take to install?

Our average timescale for an electricity connection is 2-4 weeks for a quote and 6-12 weeks for completion. But the process can take longer if:

How much will it cost to install an electricity connection?

The cost of an electricity connection depends on a number of factors, including any required traffic management or excavation work or if there is enough capacity in the existing mains infrastructure. As so, any figures quoted online would only be an average estimation of the costs involved but may not be indicative of your own project.

As so, the best way to get an accurate price for your own electricity connection will be to speak to our electricity connection experts who will be able to talk you through your options and provide you with a more accurate quote based on your project. To get started, call our team today on 0330 678 0660.

Other factors that can affect the price are:

Can I excavate a trench for the electricity myself?

If you wish to reduce the cost of a new electricity 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.

What Our Customers Say

Professional from start to finish. I had made numerous calls to SSE my supplier for meter to be moved and never got a call back or a proper answer. One phone call to GEC and it was all sorted, organised and completed within the time frame given. Would certainly recommend them


An excellent experience with the GEC – after months of trying, and failing, to get quotes or site visits for new utilities connections, these guys managed in weeks what I’d failed to achieve in months – gas, water and electricity quotes.


I was having huge problems getting a meter installed with my energy provider then I found GEC and they have been responsive and delivered what they said they would do, when they said they would do it. Customer service is prompt (no interminable wait times) and friendly.
