PRIVATE POWER POLE INSTALLATION

WHAT IS A PRIVATE ELECTRICAL POLE?

Many people aren’t aware of private poles and powerlines until their power goes out! Did you know that in Sydney, property owners are responsible for the electrical assets on their property? So beyond the connection point from the street homeowners and property owners are responsible.

Private power poles and other assets located beyond the connection point to the switchboard or meter, allow customers to have readily available electricity located where they want it on their property. Originally they would have been installed at the landowner’s request and may have been in place for generations.

A private power pole is generally located on your property and is used to support the powerlines coming in with your electrical connection to your home or business. They can also be shared across multiple properties from your nearby neighbours, or be on your property alone.

The standard height of a power pole is 3 – 8 metres. In some circumstances, your Level 2 electrician will need to install a taller pole in order to give proper clearance underneath. You definitely need to take into consideration the gradient and what equipment or vehicles need to get access to the property.

 

WHO CAN INSTALL OR REPAIR A PRIVATE POWER POLE?

To get a private pole installed in Sydney, you need to work out what area you fall under for network authority providers to see which Level 2 Electrician is authorised to work on your area in Sydney.

A Level 2 Electrician can install a new power pole for you, however, you need to make sure they’re authorised to work in your area.  The Australian Energy Regulator or AER is responsible for the three electricity distributors in NSW.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF PRIVATE POWER POLES

In Sydney, there are three main types of private power poles.

A good quality timber private electrical pole is never going to be the cheapest option when it comes to the cost of a new private pole installation, however with an expected lifespan of up to 50 years, they are certainly excellent value. They’re made out of a treated hardwood and come in varying lengths. Wooden power poles also do well in challenging ground conditions – especially near the ocean as the saltwater and spray can rust a metal pole quite quickly. So the wooden pole option will give you extra protection from that nasty saltwater corrosion.

An added benefit of using a timber pole is that they are a local renewal timber resource, so you can feel good about making a sustainable choice. The standard timber pole length is 9 metres. So they are definitely larger in size than your average steel pole.

Areas of Sydney where we would recommend you should consider a timber private pole would include all of the Northern Beaches, Eastern Suburbs and around Mosman, Neutral Bay, Middle Harbour, Drummoyne and surrounding Sydney Harbour areas. That salt is an absolute killer!

A galvanized steel power pole should last at least 15 – 20 years, depending on the weather conditions. The cables from the street can run down the inside of the pole so oftentimes will look a lot more visually pleasing than being run outside the pole. One of the biggest benefits of a steel poles is that they’re termite-proof. This can be a big win especially in rural areas as those termites can be super destructive little creatures.

Another benefit of using a steel poles is that they are not combustible so a lot safer to use in bush-fire-prone areas. So the areas of Sydney you’d be best to look at a steel power pole install would be your bushy areas around Ku-ring-gai, the Hawkesbury, the North Shore, and the Hills District. Steel poles can also be painted to give a nicer aesthetic to your property and improve the street value of your home or business.

The third and final style of the private power pole is a composite private pole. It is made of a cement composite and has a significant lifespan. The composite private poles are rust, rot, and termite-proof and are designed to allow the cables to run inside the pole.

These types of private poles are not very popular however due to their sheer size and look. They can be painted to improve their look if this is your preferred option. There are some constraints with the size of them as well.

We recently used Luke from Arrow Power for all our electrical work in our office. Extremely competitive prices and well thought out detailed quotation that advised us of all our expected costs. Very reliable and by far the best tradesman I have come across. Thanks you so much I would definitely refer you to my family and friends and will call again next time we need more electrical work done at home or work.

I rang Arrow Power for advice re moving my Electricity Pole and power line, as I had large trees causing an issue. They quickly emailed me back with a free quote, much cheaper than I expected. The next easy step was a technician coming to my place for onsite expert advice and to organize the work. Which was carried out promptly. Was very happy with the whole experience.
