The vast majority of the electricity distribution network in Australia is overhead or aerial. Aerial cabling is traditionally the most efficient way to transmit electricity – particularly over rugged or rocky terrain.
In Queensland, overhead power lines and supporting poles inside property boundaries are the responsibility of the owner of the property.
Our experienced, qualified electricians and linesmen will listen to your requirements and offer expert advice on the most effective and efficient ways to keep you overhead power cables working safely and compliant to required standards.
Trimming Trees Around Power Lines
All Terrain Power can safely clear overhead power line routes of tree branches and other vegetation. One of the biggest hazards around overhead power lines is encroaching vegetation. Tree branches falling on power lines frequently cause power losses to houses, sheds, dairy’s and water pumps – particularly during Queensland’s summer storm season.
Using our insulated truck mounted cherry pickers (EWPs) and high reach hydraulic chainsaws, our experienced crews can clear power line routes of vegetation, reducing the risk of damage to you power lines.
Fallen Power Lines – What to do
If power lines or power poles fall, safety is paramount. Your priority is the safety of your family and your property. Make sure everyone stays well clear of the fallen line. The safest place is in inside your home. Don’t forget your pets and livestock. If its safe to do so, move livestock to a paddock away from fallen lines.
Assume any fallen power lines are still ‘live’ – that is they are still carrying electricity!
ENERGEX has a priority emergency phone number … 13 19 62 … to report any powerlines brought down or electricity related emergencies.
