We’re here to help you get connected on time and without hassle. There are different ways you can work with us on managing your connections:

You might need to change your building’s electricity supply connection and meter If you are refurbishing a commercial property or installing new equipment.

There are three steps to the process:

  1. Cables and MPAN:  If you need to change the cabling, contact your local Distribution Network Operator. They will give you a new Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) that we can use to register your new meter. How to find your Meter Point Administration Number.
  2. Meter installation: We can then arrange an installation date. We need at least 20 working days notice and the process involves a credit check. (Within the London distribution area (MPAN begins 12), you’ll need to install a current transformer (CT) cabinet for any CT supply.)
  3. Electricity supply contract: We’ll offer you a new electricity supply contract. This might require a security deposit. If you haven’t signed a contract before we issue your first invoice, we will calculate your charges based on our deemed prices.
