"It'll be more like leccy & water, you pay a standard connection charge and the local service is obliged to connect you. "

This is simply nonsense. Yes, there's a standard charge if the infrastructure is virtually adjacent to your property, but if it isn't then the sky is the limit as far as costs to connect to mains power is concerned. You can be looking at tens of thousands of pounds in some cases.
