Price guidelines, indicative timelines and breakdown

When you apply for a new connection up to 60kVA, you will receive a quotation, which is typically broken down as follows:


 Description of costs:

  • TMA - A permit charge levied by the Local Authority under their Road Activities Scheme to allow the schedule and monitor of our works.
  • Cabling - Cut-out and the provision of all cabling, supply and installation of a meter board with cut-out and the preparation and termination of new supply cable to cut-out.
  • Joint Hole - A joint hole (1000mm long and 800mm wide) is required to allow the new connection to be made to your local mains distributor. The depth will need adequate clearance below our cable to allow the main to be prepared for the new connection. Following the connection to the mains, the joint hole will be reinstated to Local Authority standard.
  • Service Cable Joint to Main - the mains cable will require careful preparation under live cable jointing procedures by our skilled cable jointer to required dimensions. When the new connection is made to the live mains cable, the cable joint will need to be completed to our specification and time allowed for the joint to cure, before the joint hole is reinstated.

The new connection will be tested by our jointer to ensure the voltage of the supply is correct and can be used safely by our customer.
