Temporary Electricity Connection Charges

How to calculate new connection charges

Temporary electricity connection charges depend on two things

1- Kw of connected laod= how many kw of connection is required. it is basically the connected kw load in the electrical circuit.

2- Duration of supply is required= for how many days a temporary connection is required


let us calculate for 1 kw tempoarry connection for 3 month(90 days) in rural area(18 hour supply)

procesing fees= 100 rs

Line charge= 398 (from cost data book of uppcl)

meter cost= 872

Advance energy charge= (L*H*F*D)*TARIFF RATE = (1* 18*1*90=1620 UNIT)*8= 12960 Rs.

GST (18%)= (100+ 398+ 872)*18%=237 Rs.

Total connection charges=100+398+872+12960+237=14581

Period for Temporary connection
