Disconnection and Reconnections

Moving house
If you need your power disconnected or reconnected when moving out of or into a property please contact your electricity retailer.

Restoring a connection
To arrange for a power supply to be reconnected after power has been physically disconnected (for example when a building has been moved, or after a fire) an installation connection application will need to be completed by you or your electrician or builder.

Please note: if your connection is on the Electricity Southland Limited (Lakeland Network) you need to complete a Lakeland Network application (link below).
