Consumer Pole, Point of Attachment attachment Works and Private power Poles
Inspection and maintenance of private overhead power lines and poles

It is important that you inspect your private power lines and poles at least once a year and after severe weather events, to check for any visible signs of deterioration. However, you must never climb a pole, approach the wires, attempt any electrical repairs yourself or cut any vegetation near an energised power line. Contact with live wires can kill!

It is recommended that you check for obvious defects, such as:

  • leaning poles;
  • low hanging or damaged wires;
  • large cracks or termite damage in wood poles; and
  • corrosion in steel poles at the ground line.

Vegetation should be maintained and kept at least two metres clear of power lines. 

If you come across any obvious or suspected defects during a visual inspection, immediately arrange for further inspection or repairs by a licensed electrical contractor.

Q. What is a Consumer Pole?

A. Consumer Pole:

A pole supplied, installed and maintained by the consumer, on the consumer’s property, to provide ground clearance for the network operator’s overhead service cables.

Network Service Requests - Consumer Poles

Q. Are private Private power poles and lines my responsibility?

A. Yes, Private overhead power lines are your responsibility.

Power lines which transport electricity from your main switchboard and meter to your home or other buildings are private power lines. This includes the pole where the network operator’s overhead service cable is attached and/or the switchboard/meter box is located.

If you have private power lines or a private power pole on your property, it is your responsibility to inspect and maintain them.

This is not new. It has always been the property owner’s responsibility to maintain all electrical equipment they own in a safe condition.
