To help your research, take a look at our research assistant tools that combine our cost estimator and capacity map tools. These tools will show you potential locations that could meet your needs, and an estimated cost of the connection.
We've also put together a document that talks you through the connections journey, step by step.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic you may have uncertainties about your connection application or are considering modifying your application. Please take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions to assist you with any concerns you may have.
- Do you know the technical scope of your connection e.g. your connection size?

If you have answered no to any of these questions, please make an enquiry, we’re here to help.
