Permission is often needed from neighbouring homes to dig into gardens and driveways to “de-loop” the cables.

WPD has estimated that by 2030, there will be a million new car registrations each year and 600,000 heat pumps, in order for the Government to reach its net zero targets.

The company covers around a third of UK homes which means they could face as many as 2,000 installations each day.

Whether a household pays for their own upgrade, what upgrade they need and how much they are expected to pay will depend on where the property is in the country and who manages the network.

Government regulator Ofgem said network operators should offer households free upgrades and allow homeowners to spread the cost across their bills.

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks charges up to £200 for upgrades to the cut-out and more for cable upgrades.
