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, allow 5 working days to receive your quote if your subdivision meets standard connection criteria. For non-standard subdivision connections allow 10-12 weeks to receive your fixed price quote. This allows time to:

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

Once we’ve received your signed quote acceptance and deposit, allow a further 10-12 weeks until construction commences.

These timeframes are indicative and may be impacted by resource availability, material items with long lead times, providing incomplete information and whether an easement is required.

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.
