Work Required

When planning a new connection supply to the Northpower network or making an alteration to supply, it is important to contact Northpower to discuss connection point and phasing requirements. It may be necessary for Northpower to investigate voltage drop or transformer balancing requirements to ensure a safe reliable supply. If the service cable is not run to the designated connection point or if the allocated phasing is not installed, the applicant may incur additional costs to rectify the situation and may be liable for any costs or expenses incurred by Northpower.

Select all options that apply:
