Once your request for supply has been approved you will be sent a Westpower Connection Agreement. The connection agreement will provide all relevant information relating to the connection, including a map indicating the location the connection is to be made. If required it will also indicate if a network extension is required for the connection.
The Connection Agreement is valid for a 6 month period, after which you may be required to re-apply for the connection if you wish to proceed.
A registered electrical inspector must, by law, provide you with a certificate of compliance for your connection. For a new electrical installation this includes proof of electrical inspection. The certificate of compliance is evidence that the work complies with the Electricity Act 1992, relevant regulations and codes of practice.
