Thinking about building? We’ll give you an idea of the costs involved in connecting your new home to the network.

To give you an indication of cost, here's what we'll need to know:

  • The address of the property you would like to get power to. As the distance of the property from the nearest electrical asset impacts on the cost, if the property is rural and title is not yet issued, please give us an indication of the exact location using a lot number, DP number or Google Maps screenshot.
  • What you will be using the property for - will your connection be powering a family home, or an industrial operation like a packhouse or processing plant?
  • Any additional operations/activities your connection will need to power. This ensures we base our quote on a connection type that meets your electricity needs, such as water pumps, implement sheds etc.
