New electricity and meter connections

If you are building or renovating your home, this page will provide you with information and the forms you need to complete.

Step one: Complete the Connection Application form  

  • You can request a supply upgrade using the Connection Application form.
  • Submit the completed form online, or to your local Horizon Power office.

Step two: Pay the Design Fee

A design fee of $6,195.00 is payable for projects involving:

  • the supply of electricity to a connection with a total maximum load of between 31 kVA and 1000 kVA or 10% of the relevant systems peak load; or
  • CT metering that will result in an increase in the load capacity at the relevant site.

Step three: Accept the formal quote

Once you have received the formal quote and you want to proceed, simply sign the Quote Acceptance form and return it to us.

We will issue an invoice for the work which will need to be paid before any scheduling or construction can begin.

Step five: Work is complete

Once the power supply is available at your property, your electrician or builder may need to carry out further work.

When these have been approved, your electricity will be connected (meter installed) and you will begin being invoiced for your power supply. 

Step one: Complete the Connection Application form  

  • The Connection Application form is used to connect an underground power supply to your property where there is currently none available. 
  • Submit the completed form online, or to your local Horizon Power office.
