For Trades

With the rapid pace of development in the Counties Power network area, tradespeople are coming from far and wide to deliver services.  If you are new to working in this area please take the time to get familiar with the local requirements before you commence works.  

 

 


Local electrical requirements 

Before you quote building or electrical work, be sure you know local requirements and wiring plans.  Here are some must-read documents for electricians working in the Counties area:

  • The Requirements for Electrical Installations for the Counties Power area include local wiring diagrams.
  • If you are installing solar, wind or other local generation that will feed back to the grid you should also check out the Distributed Generation Requirements document.
  • We encourage builders and electricians to take responsibility for arranging builders’ temporary supply, service line connection and electrical inspections.
