I have purchased a property on a section of the network that has been transitioned to SPS, how do I get power to the property?
We’ll contact you about the changes involved in changing over to SPS. We’ll also honour the network connection cost for new connection applications for two years, if the network connection is lower than the cost of a SPS. The two-year period commences on the date the property owner is contacted by us, and is tied to the land, not the property owner. If the property is sold during this two year period, the new property owner can apply for a new connection at the lower connection cost.
To be eligible to receive a new connection at the ‘lowest cost’ during the two-year period, you’ll need to provide all relevant documentation and planning information including, but not limited to:
- development plans
- third party approvals
- certified electrical loads
This only applies to customers where the new connection is located within the 100-metre obligation to connect (OTC) zone of the network infrastructure to be removed.
After the two-year period has expired, any new customers will be required to pay the full cost of a SPS connection.
