What are the overhead power lines to house?

The overhead power lines to house, which is suspended by poles, comprises conductors that allow for the flow of electricity and has the capacity to carry electrical energy over long distances. It is common to sight an overhead service cable if you step into your front yard, as they run from the street’s network pole to the property itself or a private power pole.

The capacity of overhead powerline service cables can vary from single to three-phase depending on the property’s electricity requirements, usually ranging from 100amps service to 400amps. 

For instance, a warehouse that needs to power sizeable industrial equipment would require a three-phase supply, whereas a home with basic electricity needs such as TV and lighting would only need a single-phase supply.

Seek assistance for immediate repair of overhead electrical service lines.

If an overhead power pole on your property is found to be defective, you will eventually receive an electrical defect notice. The reason for receiving this notice is that the electrical connection between your property and the central network has been deemed unsafe by Ausgrid, Essential Energy, and Endeavour Energy. 

You must contact a private Level 2 ASP electrician within 21-30 days to quickly do repair of overhead electrical service lines. 

Failure to do so may result in your power being turned off. The specific defect issues that could go wrong with a private power pole include problems with the point of attachment bracket, consumer mains, private power pole replacement, repairs or installs, and upgrading to 3-phase switchboards.

Are overhead electrical lines really that good?

Overhead power lines to house, which are the large electrical private power poles commonly seen on most streets, come in two types: timber and galvanised steel poles. 

From an electrician’s perspective, they are easier to modify and reroute as faults are easily identifiable. However, they are subjected to more environmental hazards than their counterparts.

Some typical examples of these hazards include falling tree branches, vehicles driving into poles (a common occurrence in Sydney), storm and wind activity, erosion, and animal interference (such as birds and possums). 

As an overhead power line reaches the end of its running lifetime, it needs to be evaluated and potentially upgraded. This is when the decision to transition to underground or remain overhead comes into question.

Moreover, having a maintenance plan for overhead power lines can prevent small problems from becoming significant issues that cause damage and result in power outages, costing you or your business money. 

A team of specialists can implement the appropriate maintenance plan to prevent such occurrences.
