Temporary Disconnection

Repairs to roofing, spouting, painting, water-blasting, tree trimming and scaffolding can be dangerous if carried out close to overhead service lines. Similarly, caution must be exercised when digging or excavating where underground cables could be located.

It is important to remember to call PowerNet System Control on 0800 808 587 to arrange for a temporary power disconnection at least three days prior to work commencing in the vicinity of your overhead service lines or around cables.

Property owners are responsible for electrical lines, known as service lines and equipment on their property. Click on this link for more information about service lines.

If you are not sure whether you need to disconnect your power, call PowerNet System Control on 0800 808 587.
