Private Power Pole Installation
Your building gets its electricity by connecting to your street’s mainline via cables. Instead of overhead power cables dangling dangerously across your yard, you can use a private power pole to connect wires from your mainline to your switchboard.

Types of Private Power Poles
Depending on your budget and other specifications, we can install hardwood or galvanised steel power poles. Below is a brief explanation of how each option is different.
Hardwood Private Power Poles
Hardwood power poles come from resilient wood, such as timber. The wood typically undergoes treatment before use to make it pest and weather-resistant.
A properly installed and well-maintained wood pole can last three to four decades, making it the most durable option. Wood power poles are also poor electrical conductors, which make them safer for electrical wire connections. You can get it in various sizes to suit your needs, but it costs more than steel power poles.
Galvanised Steel Private Power Poles
Galvanised steel poles cost less, but they do not last as long. A well-maintained steel pole can last for 15 to 30 years, but without proper maintenance, the galvanised layer will peel off, and the pole will begin to rust.
Steel poles are typically slimmer and lighter than wood poles, making them easier to install. The pole’s narrow shape enables it to fit into most properties without disrupting the yard’s aesthetics. If your priority is saving money and using your yard space efficiently, galvanised steel poles may be the right option for you.
Private Power Pole Installation Cost
The cost of a private power pole installation in Sydney will depend on the pole type, the installer, and other factors. A hardwood pole can cost between $999 and $1199, while installing and connecting the pole can cost between $7,000 and $14,500. The price will likely go up if the pole comes with a meter box.
On average, a new galvanised steel pole costs between $799 and $999, depending on the size and supplier. Installing and connecting the pole can cost between $2500 to $5500. If you have trouble picking a pole type that fits your budget and other requirements, our level 2 electricians can provide all the guidance you need.
