Who Can Install A Private Power Pole?

  • Written by NewsServices.com

Private power poles provide property owners with the freedom to choose where electricity will enter the building. It also offers protection from hazards associated with being directly connected to the street pole. Given the vital role of a private power pole in delivering electricity, a qualified level 2 electrician should be in charge of its installation or repair.

Why is a Level 2 ASP Electrician Required For This Job?

In NSW, licensed electricians have a chance to expand their specializations. NSW's Accredited Service Provider (ASP) Scheme allows accredited organizations to perform contestable work on the NSW electrical distribution network. A level 2 electrician can work on equipment directly connected to a live electrical network. Installing a service line connecting the street pole and the overhead power lines is one work that requires the expertise of a level two electrician.

ASP Qualification

As previously mentioned, the ASP program allows certified level 2 ASP professionals to work on complex installations and repairs. This program offers different levels, which includes the following:

Level 1 ASP Electricians can extend the overhead or underground network to reach the customer's premises. They can also increase the capacity of a network, when necessary.

Level 2 ASP Electricians can install and repair pieces of equipment connected to the main electrical grid. 

Level 3 ASP Electricians are experts who work on the design and provide consultancy services on relocation, upgrades and new installations of overhead and underground electrical service lines. 

Level 2 electrical contractors have undergone training on the ins and outs of installing and repairing electrical equipment connected to the main electrical line. This training includes the best approaches to do electrical installations and repairs.
