Flexible payment terms pre-energisation
For all new connections where our connection offer is greater than £20,000 (excluding VAT) the customer can request staged payment arrangements. For new connections of a lower value, these would be considered but only granted in exceptional circumstances.
The stages will take consideration of the customer’s requirements but will be set such that Electricity North West remains cash positive at all times.
Assessment and design charges will be included in the initial payment and be non refundable if the project is subsequently cancelled.
Wayleave and legal charges may be included (where applicable) in the initial payment and be non refundable if the project is subsequently cancelled.
Charges for plant items will be determined based on the customer’s build programme, which must be provided, and manufacturers payment schedule.
Where delivery times dictate, they will be included within the initial payment.Where the period between subsequent stages is less than three months, the charges may be incorporated into the earlier payments rather than as a separate stage. The appropriate VAT rate will be charged on all elements billed.
