    Tree Trimming

    With over 20% of outages caused by trees or branches connecting with our power lines, keeping trees at least four meters from the network helps keep the power on.

    If trees on your property need tending to, get in touch with Unison Contracting for a free quote from our vegetation team. Our team of skilled arborists are certified to work in close proximity to power lines, and will ensure your trees are trimmed with care.

    Upgrade or Downgrade My Power Supply

    If your electricity needs have changed and you require an alteration to your power supply (such as an upgrade or downgrade), you must complete our New Connection process, selecting the option of 'alteration'.

    You'll need an electrician to help you complete sections of this form.

    Find Underground Cables

    Our Cable Location service is free of charge for electricity and fibre cables owned by us - in most cases located in the grass verge outside the front boundary of your property. This service ensures any digging you intend to carry out can be done so without any risk of hitting underground Unison-owned electricity or fibre-optic cables.

    We also locate underground cables which are not owned by us, because they are located inside the boundaries of private properties (known as privately-owned cables). In most situations, there is a fee associated with this service – we will always discuss service fees with you before any work is initiated.
