If you need help to work out the size of the load your electrician should be able to help. Having a close relationship with local electricians in the Wairarapa, we are able to work together to get the job done, removing the hassles and answering the questions in a quick efficient manner. We will design the best power construction suited to your needs and give you a quote for the cost. We will also obtain approval from Powerco for the proposed design concept, and notify you if Powerco have any special requirements, such as easements or any other approval conditions.
Once you have told us to start work, we will let Powerco know, Powerco will create a new ICP for the connection and send it us and to your nominated retailer. We will contact you or your specified Electrician of what the ICP number is.
PRSL will then make any upgrades required on the network and connect your new service line or cable at the pole or pillar. When we have completed all the necessary work we will let Powerco know and they will authorise your retailer to liven the property.
Your Retailer Installs the Meter and Livens the Connection: Electricity retailers have contractors who are approved by Powerco to liven new connections once certain conditions have been met. For example, the connection to the network must have been done by a Powerco approved contractor, an ICP must be ready for the address, meters must be installed, and a Certificate of Compliance must be issued and signed by your electrician to certify that the site is electrically safe. Companies such as Power Services Wairarapa Ltd have inspectors who hang meters.
