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.

Requirements for an easement are usually identified and initiated by PowerNet on behalf of the network owner.
However, in the case of new connections or subdivisions the requirements are identified by the property owner or developer in conjunction with PowerNet.

On completion of an online Installation Connection Application form PowerNet will guide you through the easement process.

If you have any specific questions regarding an easement please contact us on 03 211 1899 or email easements@powernet.co.nz
