Overhead Power Connections
Real Electrical Solutions specialises in the installation of both overhead and underground power lines. We have experience in working with high voltage equipment and have completed numerous overhead power connections in Newcastle, Maitland, Central Coast and the Hunter Valley.
Accidental contact with overhead power lines is likely to kill or cause serious injury. The NCIS reports that there are an estimated 20 deaths per year for electrical workers in Australia with New South Wales having the highest rate of fatalities, so it is essential that you hire a qualified electrical team to undertake overhead power connections on your property.
Our Level 2 ASP electricians are highly skilled to work on overhead power lines so that hazards associated with accidental contact or working in the vicinity of power lines are sufficiently controlled.
Overhead power connections for your property
Connecting your property to the electrical grid is the final stage of your build or renovation. We will use power wires that lead from a nearby power line to connect your building’s electricity supply by going through a meter, which measures how much electricity your property will use. The electricity then passes through a service panel to supply electricity to your property.
