Working close to power lines and other electrical equipment can be dangerous.
The New Zealand Electrical Code of Practice for Electrical Safe Distances (NZECP34) requires written consent from the line owner when you:
- Undertake work within 4 metres of overhead lines including the use of mobile plant
- Undertake excavation within 5 metres of power poles or their supports to a depth of 500mm or more
- Intend to erect, construct or install a building or object within the safe working distances set out in the NZECP34

We need a minimum of 5 working days to approve your application. Complex jobs may take more time.
There is no application fee. However, if a Top Energy Asset Protection Officer is required you will be charged for their time.
