Your quote breakdown

How is your quote broken down?

Our unmetered connection cost break down is 58% Excavation, replacement of ground materials and resurfacing, 27% Installation of cable and service termination (including mains fuse), 15% Completion of live electrical cable jointing to energise the new supply

  • Excavation, replacement of ground materials and resurfacing relates to all digging works and reinstatement. 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.
  • Installation of cable and service termination relates to the cut-out and 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.
  • Completion of the live electrical cable jointing to energise the new supply - 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.
  • Local authority permit - a permit charge for traffic management. This is not included in our breakdown because it is not applicable to all projects. For those where it does apply, we consider this an additional cost which we include in our quotation. 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.
