Expediting

When applying for a basic or standard connection service it is possible for the customer (or their representative, e.g. electrical contractor) to elect to expedite the connection process. By doing so, the customer and Energex will not be required to go through the formal offer and acceptance process. Upon electing to proceed with an expedited basic or standard connection service, it will be deemed that Energex has offered and the customer has accepted and agreed to the model standing offer for the connection service. View the connection process.
