What are private power poles?

Private power poles are privately-owned power poles within a property’s boundary that carry the overhead powerlines to someone’s home and any sheds, pumps or other buildings on their property.

Privately-owned poles can be wooden poles or metal poles, but are predominately located on properties that lack underground power supply and require support power lines to be supplied to the property overhead.


Who is responsible for private power poles?

The maintenance of private power poles is the responsibility of a property owner. Poles located outside the property boundary are usually the responsibility of the Energex electricity network and can be identified by a unique number on the side of the pole.

How to check your power pole?

Property power poles and their corresponding transmission lines should be checked by a licenced electrician at least every five years.

Signs of pole damage

For property owners with private poles, make sure you look out for the following:

  • 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

  • "professionalism, integrity and commitment to our Project outcomes"

    Boeing recently encountered a high priority need to establish fibre optic cable at one of our Operational sites. The time-critical nature of this need initiated a search across a range of suppliers who could satisfy very stringent requirements for schedule, flexibility, cost and quality. It very quickly became apparent to us that Craig McIntosh’s team at GNB Energy provided the best value option for our needs. From the moment Craig and his team signed on to the task, they never disappointed. Communication was fantastic between us; their clarity and honesty about the timeline and risks were outstanding…this ensured that we could continue effectively juggling the key Programmatic requirements on our side. Further to this, the completion of the task by Craig and his GNB Energy team during trying conditions went perfectly. On behalf of the Boeing Team, we like to thank GNB Energy for the professionalism, integrity and commitment to our Project outcomes.
