If you have changed your place of residence or your location (registered or actual address, etc.) and the new real estate property already has an electricity connection, please choose an electricity trader and contact it to apply for electricity supply. Additional information is available here.

New connection implementation or load increase cost creation principles

New connection implementation  or load increase is a paid service, and the costs are calculated according to the required power and the amount of work to be carried out (for example, depending on the length of the needed cable, whether digging is required, whether electricity distribution box has to be installed, etc.).

The cost of implementing a new connection or load increase consists of two parts:

  • actual costs (installation, replacement of relocation of distribution box, pulling the cable to the distribution box, etc.);
  • eligible costs (costs of investments previously made in the electrical networks).

Connection implementation with deferred payment

The possible connection implementation costs are estimated according to the Regulations Regarding the System Connection for the Participants of the Power System (available in Latvian), which set forth that Sadales tīkls and the potential user may agree on paying the connection fee with deferred payment if all of the following conditions are met:

  • the connection is implemented in a 6-20 kV or 0.4 kV electrical network with a load greater than 100 A (amperes);
  • the period of the deferred payment does not exceed 5 years from the date of signing the system service agreement;
  • the user has provided the financial guarantees requested by the distribution system operator (Sadales tīkls) for the payment of the connection fee;
  • the financing and payment conditions for the deferred payment are included in the connection agreement and take effect on the date of signing the connection agreement.
