Factors when using Electricity Private Poles
There are many factors to consider when using private poles.
The pole supplied needs to maintain minimum clearance over roadways and public walkways.
Also, a diameter and thickness of a pole will be chosen and used to accommodate the powerline. This will be due to the dependence on size or amps required or size of the electrical cable installed. Specific minimum clearances provided can be due to onsite vegetation, like trees etc.
Furthermore, all installations need to be within the rules of the Australian Electrical Standards 2000. As noted above, importantly, must not cross the neighbouring boundary property.
