Installing and upgrading mains cabling in Wellington
Most new builds in Wellington and the surrounding regions require a mains cable connection for power. In some cases, rural properties may install a transformer instead if a mains connection is too expensive.
New homes will have the mains cabling buried underground, whereas older properties often have overhead – or aerial – connections. Lite Energy can install new mains cabling undergound for new builds, move older overhead cables to underground, or even simply upgrade overhead cables for improved safety and added power supply.
Our team will calculate the demand your property will use and determine the correct cable size during the planning stages, including allowances for future growth or additions. We design the cabling system, supply the correct parts, and install the cable.
We also work with sub-contractors to bury the cable and connect it to the grid for a full end-to-end service that makes the installation and upgrades of mains cables as quick and easy as possible.
