Question
What do do you mean by "Number of Sockets Installed"?

Answer
This one is easy if you want a certain number of sockets installed in your home for each new one you want is worth 1 point each.
Exception to this are the waterproof outside sockets for these you will need to allow 1.5 each. The other exception to this is in out buildings that don’t already have electricity in them.
Note
Supplies to out buildings can not be calculated on this website we will need to visit you to see how it can be done.

Question
What do you mean "Number of Lights & Switches"?

Answer
If you have room with one centre light and one switch this would count as 1 point.
If you have one light that is switched in two places (2 Way) then this is 1.5 point’s.
Now if you want spot lights or under counter lights, they will be 1 point for the first light & switch and &#189 point for each of the others. You also need to add &#189 a point for more switches that switch the same light (2 Way)&#59

So for example a lounge with six spot lights on two switch would be 1+(5×0.5)+0.5 &#61 4&#59
And a kitchen with 16 spot lights on two switches would be, 2+(14×0.5) &#61 9 & two under counter lights on one switch &#61 1.5.

Outside lights are slightly different as you’ll need to get the light fitting that you want and we will wire to it, so each one counts as 1 point.
