Trees touching or falling through power lines during storms are the most common cause of power outages.  For safety and power supply security reasons the law requires tree owners and Top Energy to prevent trees and other vegetation from growing too close to power lines.

Trees, shelterbelts, bamboo and other vegetation that grow too close to power lines can lead to electrocution, electric shock, power voltage fluctuations, appliance damage, power cuts and the risk of fire.

To help you understand your requirements to keep the lines clear of vegetation please find further information here.
