Our power network

EA Networks owns, operates and manages nearly 3,000km of electricity lines across the Mid Canterbury district.

Get connected to our power network

If you’ve recently moved home, are building or are increasing the electrical load to an existing site, you’ll need to make a new connection request to EA Networks. 

You will also need to do this if you want to:

  • disconnect a temporary supply or reconnect supply
  • subdivide land
  • request an underground conversion
  • install a generator
  • alter the size of your connection.
