Individual connection

Getting connected

If you are building a new property, planning a dairy farm conversion, shifting a building and need it reconnected, demolishing a building, or upgrading your existing supply, you will need to make arrangements to connect to – or disconnect from – the PowerNet network. Our Connections brochure (PDF) can be downloaded.

Getting started

Prior to connecting any property to our electricity network we must be satisfied that the connection can be made safely without adversely affecting the delivery of electricity to other customers connected to the network.

PowerNet must ensure that sufficient capacity exists to accommodate the increased load of the new connection and that the electrical configuration is suitable.
