In some situations the installation of a metered supply may be impracticable, you may be permitted to connect via an unmetered supply.
Unmetered supplies are available to local government authorities, government agencies and approved providers of specialised services. They are used for services such as traffic signals, streetlights, signs, railway crossing boom gates and bus shelters.
The type of connection provided will depend on the location - most customers will receive an underground connection, however in some regional areas where the traditional network had been identified for decommissioning, customers may be eligible for a stand-alone power system.
