Electricity and Gas Law Safety Changes in SA

A new Bill has been passed that enables, but does not require, electricity entities to prune or remove ‘hazard trees’ which are outside the currently prescribed clearance and buffer zones around powerlines in the bushfire risk area, but could nevertheless fall onto powerlines, thereby creating the risk of bushfire, electric shock or interruption of the electricity supply.

To read the full details of the Bill and the new laws, members can simply login.
