Fast Residential or Business Electricity Connection in South Australia and Adelaide
If you are looking to connect your new home or business in SA, then you must do your research! The South Australian electricity market is a completely deregulated market, giving power companies the ability to charge you any electricity prices they like.

How Quickly Can Your Power and Gas Be Connected in SA?
The South Australia electricity market is broken up into one distribution zone:
ETSA (also known as the Electricity Trust of South Australia) owns all the poles, wires, and meters and is responsible for fixing any electricity faults and connecting new homes to the power grid. Typically, ETSA requires at least 1-2 business days to provide a power connection at a nominal cost. However, if you have an urgent power connection requirement, a same day fuel injection is possible at a higher cost.

Cooling Off Period for Connection: Can I Change My Mind?
