Electricity Connection FAQs

How long does an Electric 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:

  • Our experts aren’t in the area during the timescales
  • Any traffic management is required
  • Payment or signed acceptance is late
  • There are emergencies in the area that take priority
  • There are reinforcements in the network to accommodate the new load
How much will it cost to install an electric 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. For a quick and no obligation quote, call GEC today. We’ll include a full breakdown and can answer all of your questions.

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

Can I excavate a trench for the electric myself?

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.
