Most private property poles across Queensland are reaching the end of their serviceable lifespan after 30-50 years and are subject to structural issues due to weather, termites, rot and corrosion.

What is a Private Property Pole?

A private property pole is a privately-owned pole within your property’s boundary that carries the overhead powerlines to your home or other buildings like sheds, pumps or other buildings on your property. Private property power poles are predominately located on properties which lack underground power supply therefore power is supplied to the property overhead.


Who is responsible for Private Property Poles?

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of private property poles. Any poles located outside the property boundary are usually the responsibility of Energex. Energex poles can be identified by a unique number on the side of the pole, usually two to three metres above ground level. Find out more on your responsibilities from the link below:


How to check your power pole?

Property power poles should be checked by a licenced electrician at least every 5 years. Signs of pole damage to look out for are:

  • 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.
