How to Arrange Utility Services

In order to apply for new connections with National Energy Direct, you’ll need to provide us with all of the necessary information so we can submit an application to the Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) as soon as possible.

Once the necessary information is gathered, we will then design the electric, gas and water connection plans and produce a CAD drawing of the design for you to either approve, or suggest alterations.
