South Canterbury is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing areas. When you connect to our network, you're connecting to a power network which is 100% locally owned and operated.
If you're moving to an existing house or building where the power is already connected or was connected until very recently, just call your electricity retailer to have the power connected.
However, if you’re planning a new subdivision or running power to your own private job, you'll need to get in touch with us to get power to the site and the electricity flowing.
Alternatively, contact us for a network connection application 03 6874300 or ask us via email: [email protected]
A bit about the process
Every project is different, so we'll work with you to understand your specific needs.
Please be aware the size and complexity of the project, and seasonal development demands can also affect our time frames, but we’ll keep you informed.
Your co-operation in providing required information and gathering the necessary consents and approvals from relevant agencies prior to the design being finalised can really assist the application process.
Once we receive your approved agreement, with payment, we’ll be able to programme the work and give you timeframes for delivery and completion.
