Power Pole Frequently Asked Questions
When do I need a private property power pole?
Private property poles are needed in any new subdivision where the Energex Network is still overhead and not underground. Private property poles are also required in subdividing blocks where the overhead mains coming from the Energex power pole will cross the neighboring property.
Private property power poles are also installed when house connection exceeds the height of 7.9m to the point of attachment. Some house designs limit access for an extension ladder in which case you would need to install a pole inside your boundary and have the power installed underground.
When do you need poles stabilised or supported/held/grabbed?
Pole holds are needed whenever trenching, excavating or digging around installed poles.
By Energex standard, if you are excavating a 1m trench near a power pole you need to be 1m away from the power pole without the need of a pole hold. So the rule is 1m for 1m.
Who uses pole holds?
Pole holds are most commonly used with civil contractors installing service mains close to Energex/Ergon poles.
How do I know if my Power Pole is a Private property poles?
If the property power pole is inside the property boundary, it belongs to the owner of the property. Therefore the property owner is responsible for the maintenance of the pole as well as the power lines inside the property.
