If you need a new a new supply, or additional load and/or alterations to your current supply, whether you’re looking for a permanent or temporary electricity connection, we're here to help. Electric car charging points 3.6kW or above will also require an additional load application.
If you are installing an electric car charging point 3.6kW or under, you do not need to submit an additional load form and just need to register the charger.
Please complete this application form when applying for a new electrical service, additional load and/or existing service alteration and return to email@example.com or post to: Guernsey Electricity, FREEPOST, GY1 5SS
Please be aware that an additional load application is required for electric car charging points exceeding 3.6kW.
For information on Guernsey Electricity's requirements for connection onto the low voltage electricity network, please see this guide.
In Guernsey, properties receive electricity through an underground supply line cable that is connected to the wider electricity grid. Similar to a plug extension in your home, there is a finite supply of electricity ("capacity") available on the cable and more electrical installations demand more from the supply line cable.
Nobody can tell just by looking at the ground how much capacity there might be to supply a property. This is why an ‘additional load application’ is sent by an installer to Guernsey Electricity each time electrical work is requested. This includes (but not limited to) electric heating upgrades, a car charging unit (above 3.6kW) or re-wiring for an extension. An engineer will need to establish how much capacity you currently have, and how much extra you will need to properly meet your needs. Nobody wants a heating system that only works when everyone else has got their appliances switched off.
If you are considering the connection of private generation including renewable energy generation from solar, wind or other sources, please submit an EE40 application.
We have compile a document with additional information on services, inspections and additional load applications.
