Who we are

Since its inception, Power On has been driving industry change, championing competition, opening markets for independent connections providers, and helping to define the regulated codes to which the industry now operates.

A driving force in electricity for 20 years, Power On was the first ICP to attain National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) accreditation; first to undertake self-determination; the first to self-approve designs in-house; and the first to self-connect and operate on the regional network operator’s distribution systems.

We design, deliver, connect, and adopt utility connections on new-build developments in cities and large towns across the UK. Our expertise, matched with our environmentally responsible utility solutions, ensures we make the complex simple for our customers, time and time again.

Our culture – customer first mentality

At Power On, we recognise the importance of continuous improvement, the responsibility we have, and the critical importance of the role we play in the success of the developments we are part of.

Our people are proud to part of the Power On team, have a sense of belonging, feel valued and are empowered to have a positive impact on the success of our business. Our teams passionately defend and maintain our position as the leading Independent Connections Provider in the UK, and continually look for new ‘firsts’ and more ways to drive standards and capabilities even higher.

We are committed to meeting our customers’ needs and exceeding their expectations to ensure they return to us time and time again. Consistently, over 80% of our work is repeat business from highly satisfied customers – a statistic we are immensely proud of and which is down to the calibre and expertise of our diverse and dedicated people – our most important asset.
