The cost of a connection or meter move depends on the size, scale and location of the proposed works.
The size of the connection will dictate the level of work required on site and preparation ahead of the work starting (i.e. permits and consents that are chargeable).
Location also plays a significant role, particularly if you are planning to connect in an urban area or in a remote, rural area again where our network may be operating at a maximum capacity. In these areas your connection may be the trigger for network reinforcement, and a proportion of these costs will be attributed to your quotation.
Network reinforcement costs vary across voltage levels, with low voltage reinforcement typically costing less than reinforcement at Extra High Voltage.
We can however guarantee that our quotations are fixed, so there are no hidden surprises.
For large scale, commercial connections there may be variable cost elements but these will be indicated on your quotation.
The average cost is £2,500 excluding VAT
The average cost for one new single-phase connection is £2,500 excluding VAT. To upgrade to three-phase 60kVA (100 Amps) from single phase, the average cost is £5,100 excluding VAT.
The cost for each project can vary significantly depending on the usable connection point nearest to you. Our dedicated planning team will review this and offer you the lowest cost, most deliverable option available. However, if you are just looking for a rough guide, please continue with one of the options above and ask for a budget quote.
