It is a statutory regulation that only a competent and qualified electrician should carry out electrical installations, this is for safety reasons. The first step is usually to turn off the main switch in the consumer unit before the wiring of the house takes place.
Then, the necessary electrical components and wires can then be installed. And after all the necessary installations, the main switch in the consumer unit which supplies power to the house is switched back on.
