Disconnection and reconnection of power supplies at the pole/pillar (LV only) $781.00

Complete this form if you need to temporarily interrupt power supply to your home or business (for example, to carry out renovation work that doesn’t require the services of an electrical contractor). This fee will apply for us to disconnect power at the pole or pillar. 

Note: if you need to disconnect the power while electrical work is carried out at the property, you do not need to complete this form. Instead, a licensed electrical contractor is required to submit a Preliminary Notice before the work takes place and this will trigger the same process and fee. 

Disconnection of power ahead of demolition  No charge  There is no cost if you request the electricity supply to be disconnected to your property ahead of demolition. Please complete the application form to apply for this service. 
HV Submission coversheet template   This form is suggested as a coversheet for HV Submissions, which are required for a HV connection.

The fee charged to install and connect a single or three phase meter. Also charged when upgrading from a single to three phase meter. 

Please note: this fee will be included on your first bill, itemised as a ‘New Connection Permanent Supply’. Usually an electrical contractor requests the meter and will therefore be charged for this work.

If you meet the terms and conditions, this subsidised rate will be charged.  New connections and upgrades that do not meet the terms and conditions will be assessed and quoted on a case-by-case basis. Please note; you will need to engage the services of an electrical contractor to connect power from the pillar to your meter box.

If there will be an increase in demand, you will also need to complete the Connection Application form.
