What are connection charges?
They are broken down into two parts:
Your distributor will charge you for the cost of new grid extension installations necessary for supply. You will only have to pay this if you request power under 100 kW in low voltage or 250 kW in high voltage, and provided it is on land categorised as urban.
If you request power over 100 kW in low voltage or 250 kW in high voltage, or when power is to be supplied to non-urban land, you must pay for the installations necessary for supply, which means you will have to pay extension charges to your distributor.
If you want to reactivate the supply and the extension rights have expired, you will have to pay them again. You must also pay these charges when you want to increase your contracted power above the amount indicated in your current extension rights.
For more information, you can consult the current regulations in this section.
- Access charges:
1 All prices indicated in the article are valid at 18/11/2022, in accordance with Order ITC/3519/2009, of 28 December. You can consult this regulation for prices applicable to high voltage. These prices may be amended by ministerial order.
Hook-up, verification and action on measurement equipment charges
In addition to connection charges, when you request a new power supply, reactivate an existing supply or increase your power, you will also have to pay hook-up and verification of installation and action on measurement and control equipment charges.
Hook-up charges are paid for connecting the installation to the power grid. Your supply company will add these charges onto your first bill and, in the case of low voltage, the price is fixed at €9.04.
Verification of installations and actions on measurement and control equipment charges will also be added by your supply company onto your first bill and, in the case of low voltage, the cost of these charges are fixed at €8.01 and €9.04, respectively.
