Electrical asset management plans

We own and operate electrical assets, including low and high voltage lines and over 450 poles, in order to ensure the continuation of our cores services.

Under the Electrical Safety Act 1998 we are required to produce an Electric Line Clearance Management Plan and a Bushfire Mitigation Plan. These plans outline how we operate, maintain and ensure the safety of our electrical assets.
