Demolition disconnection

Demolition disconnections must be arranged through your electricity retailer. Before arranging a disconnection, the property owner or tenant (whoever has the electricity account) must finalise their account. If you are using a demolition company, they will usually organise this for you.

Types of demolition disconnections

Overhead connection

A demolition request will arrange the disconnection and removal of the meter and the overhead service cable.

Underground areas

A demolition request will arrange the disconnection and removal of the metering equipment.

It is the responsibility of the owner to remove the underground cable between the pillar and the building.

Existing CT metering

If the metering installation has a CT (typically large premises) then the property owner needs to:

  1. Obtain a quotation for CT meter removal by completing an application for relocation/removal of Western Power assets form (PDF 110kb).
  2. Make arrangements for the removal of the underground consumer mains.
