How same-day electricity connections work

You should arrange your new electricity connection in advance. Simply pick the day before you’re due to move in as the connection date, and you will have power on the moment you walk in the door. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan, and you may need power urgently.

The good news is most electricity retailers can connect power next business day when required. Let your retailer know before 1 pm, and you can be connected the following day (excluding public holidays). In some cases, an urgent connection will incur a fee, so make sure your retailer discloses all new connection fees and tariffs.

What you need to do to get your electricity connected

Whether you own your home or are a renter, you will need electricity connected at your new home. If you are sticking with your present retailer at your new house, you simply need to inform them of the date you plan to move. Your retailer will take a reading of your gas or electricity meter in order to provide a final bill at your current address.

Electricity is generally connected during weekday business hours, and you should give your retailer at least a couple of days notice prior to moving to ensure a hassle-free transition. For new builds and new metering, your builder will coordinate services with major energy providers such as Energex and Ausgrid.
