Reconstruction of an electrical network

There could be several reasons for reconstructing an electrical network in the course of its relocation or while changing the location of the connection point. For example, when you want to transfer the connection point to the border of your property.

Reasons for reconstructing an electrical network

  • Relocation of an electrical networ

    We will relocate an external electrical network, such as an overhead line, cable line or substation, on your property. It is also possible to have the overhead line in your territory replaced with an underground cable.

  • Relocation of a junction box

    We can relocate a junction box on your property if it is in the way of a new gate or something similar. We will agree on the new location when we do the work.

  • Changing the location of a connection point

    If the main fuse and the meter of your building are located inside the building and the connection point is located in the overhead line mast, on the building wall or on the roof, then you can request the relocation of the connection point. In this case we will install a new connection point with a meter and a main fuse on the border of the property, and we will also replace the overhead line with an underground cable. This service may be necessary when an old house is being demolished and a new one built, and the main fuse with the meter is in the old building.

  • Can relocation works only be ordered from Elektrilevi?

    In some cases you may organise the design and/or construction works of the electricity network yourself. In that case you will need to sign a three-party agreement between Elektrilevi, yourself and a qualified company that you have chosen to do the electrical work.

    How much does a quotation cost?

    A quote for changing the location of a junction box and a connection point can be prepared free of charge.


    Along with the quote, technical inspection documents are always drafted for the relocation of an electricity network.

    How much does it cost to reconstruct an electricity network?

    The cost of reconstruction varies from site to site and depends on the volume of work required. The price will be specified while drawing up the quotation. Some sample prices and work descriptions have been given below.

    SAMPLE 1

    Relocation of an electricity network

    A customer wants to replace 40 m of overhead line with an underground cable on his property

    SAMPLE 2

    Relocation of an electricity network in order to vacate an area

    Replacement of a 400 m of medium-voltage overhead line with an underground cable within a property

    SAMPLE 3

    Relocation of a supply point

    Moving the junction box and meter out of the house, to a mast outside

    Under a three-party agreement you can do construction works on the electricity network:

  • To make a new connection to a medium-voltage network
  • To change medium-voltage consumption conditions
  • The joining of an electricity producer at low voltage from 16 kW and at medium voltage;
  • The changing of conditions of an electricity producer at low voltage from 16 kW and at medium voltage;
  • To reconstruct the network, relocate a low or medium-voltage power line or a substation's electrical installation owned by Elektrilevi, or to replace an overhead line with an underground cable. This may be necessary if an overhead line is to be removed from a site, to allow large-scale reconstruction of the electricity network due to reconstruction of roads and streets, etc.
  • To sign a three-party cooperation agreement, you must submit to us a free-format written application. If you want to sign a three-party cooperation agreement only for a design project, you must also submit a quotation from the company you have chosen to do the electrical work. The design project must be submitted via the Elektrilevi Partners Portal and meet specific criteria. The prerequisite of accepting the design project is the existence of individual land usage agreements concluded for the benefit of Elektrilevi OÜ. Such agreements can be ordered and concluded via the Land Service department of Eesti Energia.

    If you also want to organize the construction, a three-party agreement must be signed between yourself, your chosen contractor and Elektrilevi within 1 year from the project having been accepted. Similar to planning, a quotation from a contractor chosen by you must be submitted to sign a three-party agreement for carrying out construction works.

    The management, owner supervision and acceptance of construction works is carried out via the Elektrilevi Partners Portal. The right of ownership over the reconstructed electricity network will belong to Elektrilevi.


    Companies that meet the following requirements may do electrical work in our network:
  • The company must be qualified for performing electrical work
  • The company must have done or delivered work for us within the past 24 months, or be on our list of partners for urgent failure repairs, and
  • The company must have no tax arrears.
  • After signing a three-party agreement, you will have to pay a handling fee for the agreement and a project management fee, which is 3.35% of the total cost of the work agreed.

    Depending on the technical solution of the work carried out, fees for automation work and the cost of the measurement system might also apply.

    SAMPLE 1
    Relocation of an electricity network.
    A customer wants to replace 40 m of overhead line with an underground cable on his property.

    The following work is required for relocation:

  • Design
  • Removal of the existing overhead line
  • Digging a new cable ditch with a length of 40 m
  • Installing a new underground cable with relevant accessories
  • As the location of the connection point will inevitably change (from overhead line entry to underground cable), a new junction box has to be installed
  • Building a new earthing point
  • Preparation of as-built technical drawings
  • Measurement tests and application for authorisation for use
  • Sealing
  • Total indicative price:  4 500 €

    A project management fee will be added to the price. In addition, the customer will have to construct their own electricity system from the new junction box to the house (cable from the junction box to the house).

    SAMPLE 2
    Relocation of an electricity network in order to vacate an area
    Replacement of a 400 m of medium-voltage overhead line with an underground cable within a propert.

    The following work is required for relocation:

  • Design
  • Removal of the existing overhead line
  • Digging a new cable ditch with a length of 400 m
  • Installing a new underground cable with relevant accessories
  • Construction of end masts (installation of new stays)
  • Preparation of as-built technical drawings
  • Measurement tests and application for authorisation for use
  • Total indicative price:  20 300 €

    A project management fee will be added to the price.

    SAMPLE 3
    Relocation of a supply point
    Moving the junction box and meter out of the house, to a mast outside.

    The following work is required:

  • Removal of the existing overhead line entry
  • Installation of a new junction box on the overhead line mast, including the new junction box with accessories
  • Relocation of the meter from its old location to the new junction box
  • Preparation of as-built technical drawings
  • Measurement tests and application for authorisation for use
  • Sealing
  • Total indicative price:  1 070 €

    A project management fee will be added to the price.

    In addition, the customer will have to construct their own electricity system from the new junction box to the house (cable from the junction box to the house).
