Weekend Connections – When Can I Connect My Electricity?

Joshua Chadwick By Joshua Chadwick March 11th

Taking time to arrange plans, only for said plans to be thrown out the window because you can’t follow through on the day you planned is a huge pain.

We’ve heard it many times when new homeowners are looking to connect power to their new house but they’ve either left it too late or been told they can’t connect on weekends.

Thankfully, MyConnect can arrange your new connection on the same day you contact us, as well as urgent weekday and weekend electricity connections, depending on how soon you contact us.

Connect all your utilities in just 8 minutes

Get Connected

As mentioned above, MyConnect are experts in urgent and same-day power connections and can process electricity connections on the weekend too.

Whether you’re moving to NSW, Queensland, South Australia, or elsewhere in Australia, we’ll connect you from the earliest Mondays to the latest if possible.

It’s also worthwhile to get connected earlier, as most energy providers will have cut-off times for same-day connection services.

Therefore, it’s best to contact us as early as possible to ensure your power is turned on as soon as you walk in the door of your new home. If it does slip your mind, however, an electricity or gas company can still receive the request to connect power and will be connected the next business day.

Urgent Electricity Connections

Every electricity provider differentiates in cut-off times for urgent connections, including if they will assist in a possible weekend connection. Electricity suppliers will also have their own cut-off times, separate from the energy retailer.

Please be aware that there is a distinction between electricity suppliers and retailers. Retailers refer to power companies from which you can select your preferred energy plans, granting you the freedom to choose. Suppliers, on the other hand, are assigned specific service areas, meaning the supplier serving your property depends on its location.

When it comes to energy providers, you’re almost spoilt for choice, which is both brilliant and overwhelming.

It can be tough to choose from and even more difficult to manage while you research every energy distributor you can, but that’s where we can assist you.
