For electricity, make sure the main switch is in the ‘off’ position by 7am on your connection day. You’ll also need to make sure there’s clear, safe access to the meter.
Your main switch is in your fuse box, or meter box. In houses, that’s usually on an outside wall or garage. In apartments you may find it in a cupboard or hallway. If you don’t have access to the
property yet, check this with the owner or real estate agent.
Once we’ve confirmed your connection, you can turn your main switch back on.
In most cases, your gas will already be connected, so all the distributor needs is access to the meter to take a reading.
