Frequently asked questions

Do I need to be home when you connect my electricity supply?

If there’s clear and safe access to your meter box you don’t need to be there when TasNetworks connects your electricity supply. However if your meter is inside, you have locked gates or there are dogs in the same area as the meter box, you will need to arrange for someone to be at the property to give the person connecting safe access.

What ID is required to arrange a new electricity connection?

We need an identification number from at least one of the following:
· driver’s licence
· birth certificate
· passport
We will also ask you to provide a password for your account.

When will I receive my first bill?

We issue bills quarterly. So you’ll receive your first bill within three months of your start read.
