Developers and builders

We are in the process of working on a digital connections process which will streamline how you apply for a negotiated connection service.

You may be required to pay towards the cost of the connection, extension and augmentation works. This payment is separate to your retailer’s monthly charges for ongoing electricity supply. These charges can vary significantly depending on:

  • The scale and complexity of work required.
  • The capacity requested by the customer.
  • The location of the development relative to our distribution network.

Our Connection Policy details the basis for calculating these charges.

Contestable works

United Energy is required to provide customers with tender options when electricity supply, undergrounding (or similar services) and public lighting requests necessitate augmentation of the distribution network. These tender options include the calling of tenders by the customer or calling of tenders by the distributor at the customer’s request. You can find out more about contestable works via the link below.

Urban development

We support urban growth by making sure new high density residential or industrial and commercial developments on the United Energy network have access to safe and reliable power. You can find out more via the link below.
