How long will the process take?

It depends on the complexity of the project but typically, for commercial/industrial connections, it takes between ten to twelve weeks to provide a fixed price quote. This allows time to:

  • Undertake an electrical engineering capacity assessment of our network.
  • Produce a network design.
  • Undertake commercial pricing analysis.

Providing all relevant information at the start of the process will help make the process as efficient as possible.
