Within the low voltage connection, you can choose between a normal low voltage connection (BTN), for contracted powers equal to or less than 41.4 kVA, and a special low voltage connection (BTE), for contracted powers exceeding 41.4 kVA.

The first step is to request a low voltage connection, through the form available on this page, which should result in the submission of a budget by EDP Distribuição. After accepting this, a contract will be established between you (the consumer) and EDP Distribuição, as the operator of the electricity grid. This contract comes to an end when the connection to the network is fulfilled and after the payment of the associated costs.

 

Connecting a House

If you are already connected to the distribution network, simply conclude an electricity supply contract with an energy trader.

If your installation is not yet connected to the distribution network, you must request a low voltage main connection and its budget.

The connection of the installation to the electrical power network must be constructed taking into account the standart technical solutions and the power required by the customer.

Why should I invest in an electric vehicle charging station (PCVE)?

Installation and availability for public and/or private use can provide many benefits. These will be distinguished for residential buildings, public street, offices or commercial surfaces, depending on the values, objectives traced by each interested party and the characteristics of the place where the loading station will be installed.

Some of the reasons and benefits that stakeholders may and should consider:

  • Attraction and retention of customers;
  • Corporate and brand recognition;
  • Attraction and retention of employees and employees;
  • Improvement of public health;
  • Dissemination of products and services;
  • Reduction of supply costs and maintenance of vehicle fleets;
  • Generation of revenues from parking fees and other services;
  • Generation of revenues resulting from the operation of the loading station of electric vehicles;
  • Credits resulting from the reduction of carbon emissions.
What to do?

1. Make your request for connection to the mains

2. Want to know how much it costs? Simulate the connection budget of your installation to the mains.

3. You have already received the budget and accept the conditions and costs. Learn how to make the payment.

4. What are the deadlines for completing the work?

5. Ensure that you have your installation certified by the Directorate-General for Energy and geology

6. Last step! Make your electricity supply contract with an energy trader.

What do I need to do to get light at home?

Already connected to the distribution power grid

Simply conclude an electricity supply contract with an energy retailer. See the website of the Energy Services Regulatory Authority to know the list of retailers.

 

Your premise is not yet connected to the distribution power grid

Request the mains connection at low voltage and its budget. Simulate here how much it can cost to connect your premise to the power grid.

 

 

How to make the request

-To request a low voltage connection, fill out and submit this form

-To request the feasibility of feeding, fill out and submit this form

-You can also place your order in a store or EDP agent or through the 808 100 100 [working days from 8h-22h | local call cost]

-For more information see the connection Manual

 

Information and elements needed to make your connection request

the   Travel to the site to assess the tracing, connection point and power reception;

the   Studies for the elaboration of bonding conditions;

the   Preparation of budget network connection;

the   Monitoring, supervision and reception of the work.

 

These costs are fixed by the energy services regulatory body and updated annually. They do not include the cost of drawing up the electricity project, which is the responsibility of those who request the connection when necessary.

 

Co-participation in power network

These costs are fixed by the energy services regulatory entity, updated annually, and depend solely on the requested power.

You can simulate the cost of the network connection budget via this link or refer to the links Manual 

After this payment you will receive your budget within 15 working days.

 

POWER CONNECTION BUDGET

The budget of EDP Distribuição will present the conditions of connection, the deadlines for execution, the information on the dimensions and technical characteristics of the connection and characterization of the materials to be used.

In this budget you will be aware of the possible connection options and the costs to support:



 

       Costs with exclusive-use power network elements

They relate to costs incurred only with the connection of the premise concerned. 

These costs will be borne by the requester up to the length of 30 meters of cable.

It is the responsibility of those who request the power connection for the execution of the network elements of exclusive use, using technicians or companies with competences for this purpose.

 

       Costs with shared-use power network elements, if applicable 

This type of cost occurs when there is the connection of one or more facilities and is calculated according to the requested power, distance and connection typology (aerial or underground).

These prices are defined by the Energy Services regulatory body and updated annually.

 

       Other charges, if applicable:

the   Licensing fees for connection elements to be built;

the   Values arising from the issuance of opinions, licenses or guarantees that are necessary for the same purpose;

the   Compensation of land owners traversed by the lines;

the   Fees for permits for road crossings, railroad.

These charges may not be part of the initial budget and be billed later, before the end of the work. 

 

Note: We advise that the budget initially presented by EDP Distribuição may be altered in particular in cases where the originally planned network layout has to be revised by facts not attributable to EDP Distribuição. 

When will I receive the power connection budget?

After submission of the power connection request you will have to pay the initial charges. After this payment you will receive your budget within 15 working days.

The budget of EDP Distribuição will present the conditions of connection, the deadlines for execution, the information on the dimensions and technical characteristics of the connection and characterization of the materials to be used.
