New Service Connections

If you are planning to get a new service connection, you are advised to go through the following contents carefully.

New Service Connections are fallen into two categories:

  • Ordinary Supply Connections
  • Bulk Supply Connections

Ordinary Supply Connections

Upto 42 kVA power requirements are fallen under this category.

Available connection types under this category are:

  • Single Phase 15 (A) – 3.5 kVA
  • Single Phase 30 (A) - 7 kVA
  • Three Phase 15 (A) - 10.5 kVA
  • Three phase 30 (A) - 21 kVA
  • Three Phase 60 (A) - 42 kVA

Bulk Supply Connections

New service connections are given under Bulk Supply category when the power requirement is more than 42 kVA. (i.e Three Phase, 60 (Amp))

The available categories under Bulk Supply connections are as follows:

  • Three Phase 100 A - 70 kVA
  • Three Phase 160 A - 112 kVA
  • Above 112 kVA and upto 2 MVA
  • Above 2 MVA

Three Phase 100/160 A - 70/112 kVA

Usually 100 (A) and 160 (A) connections are given directly from an installed neighboring CEB Feeder Pillar. If a Feeder Pillar is not available in the surrounding area or if it is not possible to install a new Feeder Pillar in the relevant area, a new Substation may have to be installed in the consumer premises.

Above 112 kVA and upto 2 MVA

If the power requirement is more than 112 kVA, a new substation (Transformer, Ring Main Unit, Breakers, MV Panels as required etc.) has to be installed in the customer premises to provide the requested power supply. The Substation room has to be built by the applicant at applicant’s cost under the supervision of CEB as per the design given by CEB. The space requirement for this type of a substation is around 4 m x 4 m. The cost of other equipment installation will be cost sharing basis by the Applicant and CEB based on the power requirement.

Above 2 MVA

If the power requirement is more than 2 MVA, a Radial Feeder (a direct cable from nearest Substation) will be laid to provide the requested power supply. A Radial type Panel substation will be installed to provide the requested power supply.

The Substation room has to be built by the applicant at applicant’s cost under the supervision of CEB as per the design given by CEB. The space requirement for this type of a Panel substation is around 4 m x 10 m. The cost of other equipment and cables will be cost sharing basis by the Applicant and CEB based on the power requirement.
