Easements are required to protect the rights of line companies where their electricity network equipment is installed on, over, or under land owned by another party.

An easement ensures those rights are maintained, regardless of the ownership of the land, as the easement is registered on the land title.

Standard forms of easements have been developed by PowerNet to meet the requirements of both the landowner and the owners of the managed electricity networks.

Requirements for an easement are usually identified and initiated by PowerNet on behalf of the network owner.

However, in the case of subdivisions the requirements are usually identified by the developer in conjunction with PowerNet.
