Small residential subdivisions
The electrical infrastructure in new residential subdivisions is designed according to a standard supply, unless the developer specifies that it must cater to a higher supply. The cost to provide electrical infrastructure may vary if:
- lots are not eligible for the subsidised connection fee
- an extension of the network is required to reach the subdivision
- the supply is required in an unserviced area
- you are building a larger-than-average home, or installing heavy duty or three-phase equipment
