A Capital contribution is a component of the quote when you apply for a new connection. The amount of your contribution is calculated from the actual cost of the extension work.

Part of the Capital Contribution is a Network Capacity Charge which is non-refundable, and pays for the consumption of existing network capacity and the need to upgrade the network if the capacity expires, in order to meet the requirements of your application.

The Capital Contribution Guide can be found below.

If you need to know more about the Top Energy Capital Contribution Scheme please contact the person who sent your quotation letter. If they are not able to answer you, they will arrange for someone else to contact you.
