If you need power at your property where the powerlines have been removed you can obtain a quote for a Stand-alone Power System via the new connections page on our website.
If the poles and wires have been removed within the past two years, and you want a new connection within 100m from where they once were, you may be eligible for a SPS at the lowest cost, being either the network equivalent cost, or SPS, whichever is lower.
To find out where the poles and wires used to stand on your property you can view our map.
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.
