How do I know if I have private powerlines or poles on my property?

Powerlines which transport electricity from your main switchboard and meter to your home or other buildings are private powerlines. This includes the pole where our overhead service cable is attached and/or the pole where the switchboard/meter box is located.

If you have private powerlines or a private power pole on your property, it is your responsibility to inspect and maintain them.

There is more information about private powerlines and poles on Energy Safety’s website.  You can also contact one of our local offices if you need help determining whether infrastructure is owned by you or by us.
