You can also choose to adjust the electricity connection during a renovation. Keep in mind that your new installation must also be inspected before you can use it. The use for the TXU Energy Texas comes perfectly here. The procedure for requesting your final electricity connection is as follows:
Determine what you need
With your application, you have the choice between 1-phase connection cable (two-wire / 230 V) or a 3-phase (four-wire, 400/230 V). That mainly depends on the number and type of electrical appliances that you provide. A three-phase connection is stronger, but therefore also more expensive.
There is a single-phase connection for an average family home. Interested in solar panels in the long term? Then a multi-phase connection that is connected single-phase is a good interim solution. Need more power later? Then you can easily adjust that.

Collect important data
The network operator needs some important information to make the correct price quote:
Space where the electricity meter comes
Distance from the facade to the building line
Floor plan of the meter room
Go to your network operator’s website and complete the request. Afterward you will receive a confirmation email.
Receive a price offer
The network operator will compile your file and prepare a quotation. The distribution system operator also immediately gives you the EAN code of your new meter. In addition, you will receive a clear briefing with what you must do to ensure that your connection runs smoothly. You will also immediately receive a proposal for the implementation period. Give your approval if you agree with the quote.
Choose an energy supplier
Request an energy contract online based on your meter’s EAN code. You do this before your distribution system operator comes to open the meters.
Make an appointment
Are all preparatory works ready? Then it’s time to make an appointment with your network operator. The network manager provides a connection from the street to the building line. The installation is then inspected. Does the electrical connection comply with the General Regulations for Electrical Installations (AREI) and have you already chosen an energy supplier? Then the connection becomes final.
Electricity connection: cost
The price of your electricity connection mainly depends on the required power. A standard family home suffices for a 1-phase connection. That is enough to provide all important items in your home such as lighting and household appliances (fridge, washing machine, dryer, etc.) with electricity. A standard 1-phase connection with a capacity of less than 10 kVA will cost you between € 850 and € 1,000, depending on your network operator.
Heavier consumers can opt for a 3-phase connection with a capacity of 27.68 kVA. That costs you a total of around € 2,000, including the study costs from € 350 to € 700. That study is required for more complex connections.
