Private Electricity Poles

Private electricity poles are usually made from timber, concrete or steel, which support the overhead power lines to your home or other buildings within your property boundary, and do not supply another customer. 

GB Electrical services and installs private electricity poles.

All private electricity poles require maintenance and it's the property owners legal responsibility to ensure they are safe and in good physical condition. 

A serious defect could cause a fire, electric shock, or other personal injury. A safety inspection is recommended every five years by a qualified electrical contractor, who can advise if repairs or replacement are required. Be on the look out for:

  • Poles leaning excessively
  • Evidence of rotting or corrosion at ground level or just below
  • Electrical fittings or wires, broken or pulling away from the pole
  • Cross arms that are splitting, loose or sagging

As GB Electrical is Level 2 ASP certified, you can be assured that you're in safe hands. Contact us today for an inspection or quote on repairs on installation.
