Who is responsible for maintaining private power poles?

As the property owner, you are responsible and accountable for all privately owned poles on your property. Once we’ve inspected the first private power pole, we’ll notify you if maintenance or replacement is required, and who you need to contact to complete the work.

Depending on the condition of the pole, you’ll have either 30 or 90 days to replace it or we may advise to undertake this work in the future.

More information about private power poles can be found on the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety website
