It is likely that your property is already a href="https://www.switch-plan.co.uk/new-home-energy/grid-connect/">connected to the grid, but there are instances where it might not be, such as moving into a new build. You want to follow the steps below if you are one of the exceptions i.e., that you are moving into a new build, whether you built the home yourself or someone else built it for you.

  • Call the National Grid Energy Transmission (NGET) on 0800 688 588 to arrange a meeting for pre-application. This meeting will cover the workload, cost, and timeline involved in the project. It is best to do this in advance so that the timeline falls into place with the date you anticipate to move in.

Before moving, take a meter reading so that you do not need to pay for energy that you haven’t used. * After you have your meter reading, it's time to sort out your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). * Once your MPRN is sorted, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't use.
