What Is An Electrical Defect Notice?
Endeavour Energy or Ausgrid will issue a notice if your electrical connection or set-up fails to comply with the safety standards. The NSW Electricity Supply Act 1995 has strict conditions for the maintenance and supply of electricity.
Distributors whose networks ignore code will face closure, and if the provider feels that your electrical connections pose a safety hazard to the rest of the grid, you will receive a notice.
There are several reasons for these electrical defect situations, including:
- Adding a storey to a building
- Installing a clothesline or antennae too near to the mains
- Pool construction
- Landscaping too close to service lines
If you have already received a defect notification, call Calibre Connect so that we can address it immediately.
Who Issues Electrical Defect Notices In Sydney, NSW?
- Ausgrid covers Sydney Metropolitan, Hunter Valley, and Central Coast in New South Wales.
- Endeavour Energy covers Sydney Greater West, Southern Highlands, Blue Mountains, South Coast, and Illawarra.
These companies are the only two entitled to issue such notices in New South Wales. After giving the notice, an inspector will arrive to ensure that you’ve followed up on the matter. If the inspection finds you are still non-compliant, the company will stop power to your property.
The auditor may give you a set time to fix the issue, but it is not obliged to warn you of upcoming inspections. If the company arrives to see that you’ve done nothing about the areas of concern, it might decide to disconnect you sooner.
It is best to be prepared. Call Calibre Connect as soon as possible and make sure your audit is successful.
