Domestic Overhead Wiring
The majority of the electricity distribution network in Queensland is overhead wiring as it is in most cases the most efficient way to transmit electricity – particularly over rugged or rocky terrain.
Overhead Wiring On Private Property
In Queensland, overhead power lines and supporting poles within private property boundaries are the responsibility of the owner of the property.
Our experienced, qualified electricians and linesmen will listen to your requirements and offer expert advice on the most effective and efficient ways to keep you overhead power cables working safely and compliant to required standards.
Trees Around Property Power Lines
One of the biggest hazards around overhead power lines is vegetation. Tree branches falling on power lines frequently cause power losses to properties, homes, outbuilding and stand alone electrical motors like pumps. We see this a lot in Queensland’s summer storm season.
Our experienced team can clear all overhead power line routes of tree branches and other vegetation on your property.
GNB Energy can assist you with the design, installation and maintenance of Overhead Power Lines on your property.
Fallen Power Lines – What to do
In the event of power lines or power poles falling, safety is paramount. Your priority is the safety of your family and your property. Make sure everyone stays well clear of the fallen line – the safest place is in inside your home. Assume any fallen power lines are still ‘live’ – that is they are still carrying electricity!
