Private power poles and lines

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 a new requirement. It has always been the property owner’s responsibility to maintain all electrical equipment they own. 

Landowners are also required to keep trees and branches clear of the power lines. This will help prevent power interruptions and reduce the possibility of electrocution or fire.
