    Connecting to National Grid

    Has anyone got any experience of having a property (house) connected to the National Grid.

    Any idea of minimum/maximum costs? Any idea of how long it takes to get a firm price?

    Gas or electricity?

      Thanks.

        A lot depends on the run from the main.

        Why not ring them up and ask? Last time I did this was in an urban area and they were instantly able to pin point the main in the street by me giving them the address and then even discuss the position of the meter in an outside wall by using Google Earth - basic price given at same time (£750 if I remember rightly). Wait was 2 weeks.



        Freedom at the point of zero............

          OK, that's positive news. I will call on Monday.

          Many thanks.

            A ground floor flat in one of our freeholds had recently got a new gas connection. Cost was something around £3k - for maybe 30m pipe from the middle of the road through the courtyard of the property, incl. installation of a meter (of course). That was in the South West area.

            But I agree, just get in touch with your DNO (not National Grid but instead your local grid owner) and they should be able to quote you a number fairly quickly.

                Result! I have had a verbal quote of £350 - £400 and suppliers have confirmed the gas mains is in the street.

                  A couple of years back I nearly bought a flat the had no gas supply, I got a quote for about a grand to have it plumbed in from the street, but you have to consider the costs of having the premises plumbs, like central heating and other gas appliances, central heating will be a major cost.

                    Yes, I've already factored in the cost of the central heating. It's worth the spend definitely.

                      If it's like electrical connections then you will need to add on the cost of groundworks. My electrical connection cost a few hundred. But the short trench required cost over a thousand.

                        No, they have confirmed the price.
