Does the premises currently have an electricity supply?

If the business premises are already supplied with electricity then great, this makes the process a lot easier. If not, then new cabling will need to be installed. This process can take up to 12 weeks to complete so be sure to factor it in to your plans for the business premises.

What is an MPAN number and where can I find it?

An MPAN (or Metering Point Administration Number) is a unique reference number for your electricity supply. It will be 13 digits long and begin with an S as shown in the example below:

For existing connections it can be found on a previous electricity bill or your landlord should be able to provide this information. If you can’t find it you can get in touch with your local energy distributor and they should be able to tell you your MPAN. Find the energy distributor for your area here

For new connections you will be able to find the MPAN in your new connection agreement documentation.

How long does it take to get a new business electricity meter installed?

Once an agreement has been reached with an energy provider to supply the premises, the meter installation will typically take 2-3 weeks. Therefore it is advisable to start the new metering process at least a month before you need to start using electricity at the premises.

What is the KVA of the supply?

The KVA (or Kilo Volt Amperes) can be found on your new connection agreement documentation and is the total amount of electricity that you can draw from the grid at any time. This should be adjusted to the needs of your business. For example, if you have moved into an existing business premises and the previous tenant ran a lot of power intensive machinery, you may find that the KVA is set too high and you’re drawing (and paying for) more electricity than you need. Conversely, you may have a lot of energy intensive equipment that needs a higher KVA to power it all.

What phase is the supply, single or three-phase?

This information refers to the voltage of the supply and can be found on your new connection agreement documentation.
