BEFORE BREAKING GROUND
1. Contact us during the planning stage
Reviewing your site plans, construction and electrical specifications, outdoor lighting and landscaping drawings can help us assess your power needs correctly at the outset to avoid delays later on.
2. At least 3 months advance notice of project
This time allows us determine the power load (single-phase or three-phase) and voltage required for your building, and if any utility poles need to be moved or erected to service your property. This gives us sufficient time to contact and negotiate with landowners, schedule a Grenlec crew, and contact any neighbouring customers about potential service disruptions.
3. Before excavation
Contact us about any existing electricity poles on the property that may need relocating, to facilitate clearing of the land.
4. Temporary service connection
To facilitate electricity supply to the property during construction, you can apply for a temporary 6-month connection from the Electrical Inspectorate Unit at the Ministry of Works.
5. Assessment required for three-phase electricity
To ensure that the capacity is available, as well as to provide a cost estimate for the connection, we recommend that Grenlec’s site inspection be conducted prior to any project wiring.
