Electricity fees

After-hours connection fees are applicable when a request to connect power is made outside the distributor’s business hours’ time frames.

In Victoria, South East Queensland and South Australia, any request to connect power on the same day may require an after-hours connection fee.

In New South Wales, any request to connect power within two business days may require an after-hours connection fee.

Please call us on 1800 462 668 if you would like to know more or if you have any questions.
