Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to connect electricity?

It only takes a few minutes of your time and HOOD will take care of the rest. We’ll set up your connection for the date that you request; and if you need an urgent electricity connection, we may even be able to get you connected within hours. Some providers are also able to connect electricity on Saturdays.

How much notice do I need to give to disconnect my current address?

When moving homes, you need to give your current provider at least a week's notice, but the more notice, the better. While your provider won't cut the power to your old home until a day after you've moved out, providing ample notice will mean avoiding any unnecessary hassles.

Do I need to be there for my new address to get connected?

Moving homes is a busy time in anyone's life. Luckily, most energy providers don't need anyone home to be able to connect your new home. All you have to do is make sure that your electricity supply is switched off on the main switchboard beforehand for the technician to connect your new home successfully. You may need to be home during this connection if you live in Queensland or New South Wales.
