Helpful information for industry

  • If the site’s consumer main size (CMS) is greater than 35mm, please do not proceed with a service request submission. We classify this as an above standard supply, and a project is required. Go to new connections to request a project
  • If we determine an overhead service runs across a main road when arranging your appointment, we may be required to arrange traffic management which can take up to 3 weeks to organize
  • We provide meters, meter fuses and overhead service cables - all other hardware should be supplied by the electrical contractor
  • If the existing meter panel contains asbestos, the electrical contractor must arrange the supply and installation of a new panel
  • If the service you request impacts another customer’s supply, by law, we must carry out a formal notification process to ensure affected customers receive appropriate notice. This process may delay the delivery of the service by 3 weeks
  • If you require the permanent removal of a meter, please contact your retailer for a supply abolishment.
