How do I get an electric meter fitted?
Before an electric meter is fitted, you need to have an existing electric connection. Don’t worry if you don’t already have an electric supply in place, as one of the UK’s leading utility companies, we can handle the entire process of getting you connected, whilst fully complying with Ofgem guidelines. Call us today on 0330 123 5665 to speak to one of our experienced advisors.
Can I move my electric meter?
When planning a renovation or an extension, your electric meter may be better suited in a different location. While it’s an inconvenience, as a homeowner or renovator, you cannot undertake this task yourself, unless you’re a fully qualified and licensed electrician. As aside from it being very dangerous, it’s also illegal.
For safety reasons, your mains electricity supply is switched off and then the process of moving the electricity meter can be undertaken.
How long does it take to move my electric meter?
This isn’t a straight forward question to answer as all meter moves are different, depending on the complexity of the job. When you get in touch with Crown Utilities and explain exactly what your requirements are, we can provide you with an accurate time scale.
Our standard timescale is 2-4 weeks for a quote and 6-12 weeks for works to be completed, but again this depends entirely on each individual requirement.
How much does it cost to move my electric meter?
Without us knowing the exact details of the electric meter and where you want it to be moved to, we are unable to give you an accurate price. When you get in touch, we will request site plans of the property, including where the meter is located so we can gain a thorough understanding of the complexity of the job.
Depending on the new location of the meter, you may need a new supply cable or an extension to the existing cable.
Where can I position an electric meter?
The ideal location for any electricity meter should be on the wall closest to the electricity main, this can include garages or inside the building. Any electricity meter (this includes gas meters) are generally positioned outside, but some older properties may have the meters inside.
