LV Metered disconnection trial


We commenced a trial to enable ICPs to disconnect metered and unmetered LV services. Since then, unmetered disconnections have become Business as Usual and we have extended the trial to include LV mains cable disconnections.

Details of trial

The trial enables an ICP to carry out disconnection works associated with a new connection scheme. The trial will be open to accredited ICP’s for the following work types:
