Keeping your site on track


Temporary Electric Supply Service

If you’re working on site, it’s likely you’ll need a temporary supply of energy to keep you up and running. Our team of experts are on hand to help you set up your temporary connections, no matter what size, quickly and efficiently so that you can get back to work.

Why would you need a temporary builders electric supply for your construction site?

Your construction sites will most likely need electricity to power any tools, lighting, or onsite facilities you have. We will work with our network of approved suppliers to help provide you with temporary electrical supplies for your site.

These come in two forms:

  • Up to 70kVA – this is best if you only need to power basic tools or lighting across your building site.
  • Over 70kVA – this is best for larger building sites that may be using heavy machinery and powering site offices.

If you’re planning on demolishing an existing building in order to rebuild, we’ll work with our accredited suppliers to remove the existing meter and replace it with a temporary one.

When development is complete, we can arrange for the installation to be decommissioned or even converted back to a permanent meter.
