Hi Shikades,

 

Thank you for getting back to us!

 

To confirm - is there an electricity connection currently active at your property, or are you having a new one installed?

 

Kind regards,

Thanks Shikades.

 

Have you requested any other work be completed at the same time as your meter upgrade? For example, have you recently installed a solar system or upgraded your hot water unit?

 

Cheers,

 

Jayden
