Your electricity trip switches, consumer unit and meter are mounted on a wooden backboard. You may need to replace the board if it’s old, worn, damp/wet or has been vandalised. You will need to organise your own electrician to remove and re-attach your electrical equipment and fit a new meter board.
NIE Networks will need to temporarily remove the meter and their other equipment from the old board and re-attach it to the new board. To obtain a quote for this work you will need to complete a connection application form for an alteration
and submit it to our connections team.
In order to work safely, your electrician may need the electricity to be disconnected temporarily. If this is the case please call our customer helpline number on 03457 643 643, in advance of the work being done. Our metering team (SRU) will agree a suitable date and time to call to your property to arrange this temporary disconnection and reconnection.
Under no circumstances is your electrician/electrical contractor allowed to remove NIE Seals or equipment to complete this work as it is illegal to do so.
