    The Registered Competent Person Electrical search facility lists all electricians registered to work for householders in Toronto and NewMarket, making finding the right person for the job easier than ever before.

    All electricians listed and permitted to display the mark are registered with an electrical Competent Person Scheme Operator, and have been authorised by Government to self-certify that their work is compliant with Building Regulations. This means they meet strict entry requirements, their work is regularly assessed, demonstrating their ability and ongoing competence, and that it meets the correct standards.

    How much will this cost?

    Our price is not all-inclusive. There will be additional costs and work that you will have to pay builders, electricians, councils or other third parties. These costs are numbered on the diagram and explained further below.

    You will need to dig a trench

    You will need to dig a trench from your new meter position to your property boundary. You would normally appoint a builder to do this for you but we can quote for it too – prices from $75/metre dependant on the surface type.

    Buying your electricity meter box
    You will need to buy an electricity meter box and other material – this is to protect our cable.
    An electrician
    Before you can use your power tools, you will need to employ a qualified electrician who will charge you a fee for installing temporary electricity for the building site. They will need to certify their work.
    Fitting your electricity meter
    You need to arrange for your electricity supplier to fit the electricity meter.
    Do you have a parking space we can use to get close to the power cable? If not, there may be an extra cost incurred ($30 to $300 dependant on the rate) to arrange this with the local authority.
    Excavating in the highway

    We always have to dig in the footpath or road to connect a new underground supply. Only an accredited company can dig in the highway. The local authority may charge us to close the footpath or road which can delay work. Please note that in rare circumstances this could cost up to $15,000 and it could take up to three months to obtain permits.


    Usually you need this service if:

    • You are applying for up to four single-phase connections
    • You need one three-phase connection up to 70kVA (100a)
    • You are supplying premises with up to four metering points
    • The meter position is less than 43m from the nearest main (likely to be in the footpath)

    How long will the work take?

    6-8 weeks from payment

    This is an approximate time that the work could take, from quote acceptance and receipt of payment. Please be aware that during periods of high workload the times indicated may vary.
