Private Power Pole Installation
Building projects regularly require a private power pole installation as part of the overall construction design. Whether you require private poles to be installed on your property as part of a new build or an extension, Real Electrical Solutions is one of the leading private pole installation companies in Newcastle, Maitland, Central Coast and the Hunter Valley and can assist you in your installation.
What is a private power pole installation?
Power lines that transport electricity from the main switchboard or metering system to your property are private power lines. Any power pole located on private property which supports the network distributer’s service cables or private power lines is considered a private power pole.
The installation of private power poles must be carried out by Level 2 ASP electricians. While a standard electrician can undertake general electrical work at your property, only an Accredited Service Provider is authorised to perform a private power pole installation.
Real Electrical Solutions’ team of Level 2 ASP electricians install private power poles in Newcastle, Maitland, Central Coast and the Hunter Valley to meet the strict standards of Ausgrid’s distribution network.
Who is responsible for a private power pole installation?
Ausgrid will occasionally perform an inspection of private poles and power lines to check for safety and bushfire hazards, but under common law, the responsibility remains on the property owner to safely install and maintain the electrical assets on their property beyond the connection point so they do not pose a hazard to the property occupants, nearby properties and members of the public.
Property owners are responsible for:
Preventing injury or electrocution to members of the public
Preventing fire on the property or causing bushfires
Maintaining the quality of the electricity supply to other consumers
Property owners are advised to inspect their private power poles regularly for visible defects such as signs of damage, nearby vegetation growth, weather damage and low-hanging lines.
