Cable Location

Please note that we will be operating on low staff levels with only essential fault work being performed over the Christmas and New Year period to give our staff a well-deserved break. Therefore, the close off date for the completion of all consents will be Friday 13 December 2019.

We will not be accepting or processing applications for Close Approach Consents, Cable Locations and High Load Consents between Friday 13 December 2019 and Monday 6 January 2020.

In the New Year, we will be accepting applications from Monday 6 January 2020 but please remember that a minimum of five (5) working days is required to process your application.  If your application has a work or start date before Monday 13 January 2019  it will be automatically declined.

A Cable Location application engages Top Energy to mark the location of underground electricity cables before you dig or excavate to ensure your work is undertaken safely, and to avoid any costly damage to the electricity cables.

We need a minimum of 5 working days to approve your application. Complex jobs such as Major Works Projects may require dedicated resource by negotiation, additional time and cost.

There is no charge for us to locate the Top Energy owned cables. If you want us to provide location services for cables on private property such as your Service Line, the charges are $138 per hour including GST.

Please note, you must be on site during your cable location.

Same day cancellations or failure to be on site at the appointed time will generate a $138 fee (including GST).
