Existing & Proposed Equipment
Estimate as accurately as possible the amount of electricity supply (in kilowatts or horsepower) you plan to use. It is critical that we know if you’re installing Floor Heating, Air Conditioning or any other high load equipment. Our design is based upon your information and requirements.
Please sketch your property to help us identify where you want your electricity supply. If it is a large rural property, you must detail the exact location (measurements & pole numbers) and all other buildings and objects. Fences will be assumed to be the property boundary unless otherwise indicated.
Note: An aerial photograph of your property may be available at no cost on the internet or via your estate agent or local council.
Please provide the pole number and the distance of the power pole closest to your property. The pole number is generally on a strip of plastic or aluminium attached to the pole at eye level and between 4 and 10 digits in length. Providing us with a clear photograph of the pole numbers will ensure accuracy and avoid delays.
How long does it take to get connected?
The time frame to connect power is determined by a number of factors including our works schedule and activities such as surveying and obtaining necessary permits and approval from councils and other authorities. Indicative timeframes may be provided; however a more specific timeframe will be provided once the extent of works and other arrangements are finalised.
Please advise us if you think a new power line may need to cross your neighbour’s property. If known, please provide the neighbour’s contact details.
Please contact your Registered Electrical Contractor (REC) if you are unsure about your Electrical Loading requirement.
