What is a barge fuse and how is it replaced?

Barge fuses are mounted at the connection point near the bargeboard of your house. These fuses are installed between the Ausgrid service line and the customer’s main electricity supply. Due to the dangers involved in performing a barge fuse replacement, you will need to hire a professional to undertake the work. 


There are strict restrictions for replacing barge fuses. Only qualified electrical contractors working for a metering provider are permitted to isolate the fuse at a switchboard and must arrange for it to be re-sealed once the work is completed. Pulling fuses at barge boards requires an

Accredited Service Provider authorised with the local distributor to perform the isolation.

Our team has all the necessary accreditation, authorisation and specialist equipment to replace your barge fuse safety and in a timely manner.
