New Subdivision or Development

Want to develop a multi-lot, multi-stage subdivision or divide your section in two?

You'll need:

  • To read WEL's Network Connection Standards.
  • Your site/location details and a site plan in DWG format
  • Your surveyor's contact details
  • Details of your subdivision including number of lots
  • Your electrical capacity requirements for example, phases per lot, amps per phase

Does the quote need to include street light reticulation costs? Please provide a Streetlight Reticulation plan during the application process.

How long will the process take?

It depends on the complexity of the project but typically, as per WEL's Capital Contribution Policy, if your subdivision meets the standard Connection criteria you can expect a fixed price quote within five days. For other subdivisions you can typically expect WEL to provide a fixed price quote with ten to twelve weeks. This allows time to:

  • Undertake an electrical engineering capacity assessment of our network.
  • Produce a network design
  • Undertake commercial pricing analysis.

Providing all relevant information at the start of the process will help make the process as efficient as possible.

Is there an application fee?

Typically we do not charge an application fee for Standard Connection Applications, but we may ask you to pay a non-refundable application deposit for Non-Standard Connections.
