Getting you connected safely

EASL works with you to get your project connected to the Northpower grid

Electrical Activation Services is an authorised Livening Agent for Northpower. We operate in the Northpower area from Kauri Forest and Whangaruru, to Pouto, Topuni and Mangawhai, including Whangarei and Dargaville, to provide electrical inspection and connection services to support electricians to get new builds connected, and for relocating power meters.

What we do

Getting connected

If you're ready to get your new connection (Builders' Temporary Supply, Permanent Supply, or a meter relocation), talk to your power retailer and have your electrician talk to Northpower. Let them know you wish to use us as your livening agent.

Next, they'll let us know about your new connection, and we'll be in touch with you to arrange to get you connected.

How to prepare

Homeowners and builders:

Electricians - for your site to be ready:

Getting an appointment

For new or altered connections

We'll contact you (as the applicant or applicant's electrician) to arrange an appointment once we have received work orders from your retailer and from Northpower, using the details you have supplied to Northpower as part of your application.

For MEN inspections

Contact us to arrange an appointment - call or text 021 735 625, or email

What happens on the day

We'll inspect and test your installation, and if all is well, we will complete connection of the meter and your installation. If there are any issues, we'll work with you to resolve as part of the connection process.
Note that except for Builders Temporary boards, the electrician is required to be present at the time of the appointment for livening and handover.


We will invoice the electrician once work has been completed and the connection is live. Contact us (below) if you wish to confirm pricing.
