    GoSwitch partners with retailers that can connect power next business day if required. Let your retailer (or GoSwitch representative) know before 1 pm, and you can be connected the following day (excluding public holidays). There may be an urgent connection fee included, so speak to your retailer regarding new connection fees and tariffs.
