Frequently Asked Questions

The expense associated with an electricity connection is subject to substantial variation, contingent upon the specific requirements of your project. Upon receiving your application and drawings, we will promptly furnish you with a detailed quotation that offers a comprehensive breakdown of costs. Your dedicated account manager will also remain readily available to address any inquiries or concerns that may arise.

Several factors can influence the final pricing, including, but not limited to, the following:

  1. Traffic Management: In some cases, you may be required to cover a local authority fee if any roadwork or excavation near your site is necessary for the connection.

  2. Excavation Work: You have the option to conduct excavation work on your property, which can potentially help reduce overall costs associated with the connection.

  3. Meter Cabinet Installation: If your project necessitates the installation of a new meter cabinet, this will also be factored into the overall cost estimate.

Rest assured, our goal is to provide you with a transparent and comprehensive quotation, ensuring you have a clear understanding of all expenses related to your electricity connection. Your account manager will serve as a valuable resource throughout this process, addressing any queries or clarifications you may require.

Coordinating various services to ensure a timely and hassle-free electricity connection can be a complex endeavor. Navigating the intricacies of determining which specific service providers are needed for each aspect of the process can often be a daunting task, potentially leading to delays in getting your electricity supply up and running when needed.

However, at Energy Meter Registration , we’ve streamlined the entire process to alleviate this complexity. With a commitment to simplifying electricity connections and reducing stress for our clients, we assign you a dedicated account manager who takes charge of all the necessary interactions with relevant statutory bodies.

From initiating the application to overseeing the entire connection process through to completion, we’re here to ensure that your electricity connection is executed with utmost ease and efficiency. Our goal is to provide you with a seamless experience, allowing you to focus on your core operations while we handle all the intricacies behind the scenes.

Your electricity provider is the company you select to purchase electricity from and settle your bills with. You can identify your supplier by referencing the MPAN or supply number displayed on your electricity invoice—a distinctive 13-digit code used to uniquely identify every electricity supply point in the UK. To determine your electricity supplier, please contact us on 0161 222 4122, and our team will assist you promptly.

At Energy Meter Registrations, the average time to receive a quotation is typically 2-4 weeks, with the completion of works usually taking 6-12 weeks. However, it’s important to note that these timeframes may be extended under certain circumstances, such as:

  • Unavailability of our contractors in the specified area within the designated timescales.
  • The requirement for traffic management, especially when the new connection involves work on the opposite side of a road.
  • Prioritisation of emergencies within the customer’s local area.
  • Implementation of network reinforcements to accommodate the new load.
  • Delays in payment or receipt of signed acceptance from the customer.

Your MPAN, or Meter Point Administration Number, serves as a distinct reference for your electricity supply and can be located on your energy statement. If you don’t have access to your bill, your energy provider or DNO (Distribution Network Operator) can provide this information, or you may contact the National Grid at 0870 608 1524. MPAN is sometimes referred to as an S number or supply number, and it is associated with your electricity connection.
