Why Do I Need a Level 2 Electrician?
In New South Wales, Level 2 electricians are authorised to work on or near the networks of Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy. They have the expertise to handle a variety of electrical works, including:
Supply and install private power pole
For a safe and reliable electricity connection to your premises, trust Gordon Powers to supply and install a private power pole made of approved materials like concrete, steel (galvanised), or timber. Our licensed level 2 electricians in Sydney can efficiently install a 25mm XLPE Aluminium single-phase or three-phase ABC cable to the point of connection located at the top of the pole for a typical domestic installation of a 100 amp supply. We also install a pole cap, hook, and other appropriate fixings to comply with the specific pole used. Count on our experienced team for fast and efficient private pole installation services in Sydney.
Consumer mains upgrades
Consumer mains upgrades are essential for ensuring the safety and reliability of your electrical supply. These upgrades are typically required when the wiring system between the point of attachment, point of supply, or point of connection and the meter box does not comply with safety regulations, is damaged, or is unable to handle additional load consumption. While a qualified electrician may complete these upgrades, a Level 2 electrician is required to test, disconnect, and reconnect services to ensure that the installation complies with AS3000 wiring rules and NSW Service regulations. Upon completion, the electrician must provide a certificate of compliance for electrical works to both the customer and network supply authority, verifying that the installation meets safety standards. For professional and reliable consumer mains upgrades by licensed and experienced Level 2 electricians in Sydney, choose Gordon Powers.
Overhead service and underground service mains
Overhead service and underground service mains are installations completed by a level 2 electrician that comes in the form of single-phase and three-phase supply. An overhead service cable comprises conductors that allow for the flow of electricity. Suspended by poles, an overhead service cable has the capacity to carry electrical energy over long distances. If you step into your front yard, you’ll likely see an overhead service cable. They run from the street’s network pole to the property itself or a private power pole.
Overhead power line service cables can be either single or three-phase, depending on the property’s requirements, usually range from 100amps service to 400amps. For example, a warehouse that needs to power large industrial equipment would require a three-phase supply and a home with basic electricity needs, like TV and lighting, would only need a single-phase supply.
To ensure the safety of your electrical installation, it’s essential to address any issues that may cause it to fall short of safety standards. Faulty wiring, modifications to the original connection, and unkept vegetation that interferes with electrical wires are all reasons for electrical defect notices. Other common issues that may cause defects include rusty or broken brackets, loose connection boxes, rotten fascia boards, outdated switchboards, UV-damaged mains, point of attachment issues, and low-running overhead service cables. This is where a Level 2 electrician can help. A licensed and accredited Level 2 electrician has the knowledge and expertise to identify and address these electrical issues promptly and efficiently. They can carry out repairs, upgrades, and installations to ensure your electrical system is safe and compliant with safety standards.
In addition to the services mentioned above, a Level 2 electrician is equipped to handle a wide range of electrical work.

To call an ASP-certified level 2 electrician in an emergency, you just need to click the “Call us” button on the top right corner of this web page or manually with this number 0291997480.
What is an installation defect notice?
Defect notifications are issued by Ausgrid inspection officers on both new and existing connections. The notification details faults on a customer’s connection to an Ausgrid electricity network when it does not comply with all relevant safety and network standards (including the NSW Electricity Supply Act 1995, and the Electricity (Consumer Safety) Regulation 2006).
Is there a particular reason my home was inspected?
No. Ausgrid inspection officers carry out regular and routine inspections across their electricity network to ensure public safety and network standards are complied with.
Why have I been issued a defect notice?
Your electrical installation does not meet safety standards. This could be for a number of reasons, such as incorrect or faulty wiring, recent modifications or additions to the connection, or vegetation growing too close to electrical wires.
My electrical work was completed by electrical contractors or an Accredited Service Provider (ASP). Why don’t they receive the defect notice?
Where the defect is a result of work completed by an electrical contractor or an ASP, both you and the contractor will be notified about it, as well as what the fault is, and the timeframe for rectifying it.
Will the electrical contractor have to repair the fault?
Yes. It is the contractor’s responsibility to address any defects identified, and all work on electrical connections to an Ausgrid network must be completed by licensed electrical contractors or an ASP.
What happens if they don’t?
Defects that are not rectified within 21 days of issuing a defect notice may result in the disconnection of electricity supply to the property, until suitable repairs are made. Where an original contractor is unable to carry out the repairs, it is your responsibility to engage another contractor qualified to complete the work to the safety and service standards required. You can then consider taking further action against the original level 2 electrical contractor by referring the matter to NSW Fair Trading.
Isn’t it unfair that I am impacted because of a level 2 electrician’s mistake?
The disconnection of electricity to a property is considered a last resort, however safety is paramount. Ausgrid is required by law to ensure all electrical connections comply with safety standards and keep everyone safe.
My electrical connection has not changed. Why have I been issued a defect notice now?
Defect notices issued on existing service connections are often a result of vegetation such as tree branches interfering with electrical wires, or modifications made to existing connections.
Why is this my responsibility if it is Ausgrid’s network?
Ausgrid is responsible for the maintenance and repair of its electricity network in the street. Residents and businesses are responsible for safety clearances and connection points for the service mains that extend onto property.
Works undertaken from the first point of connection on the property are considered the customer’s electrical installation, which you are responsible for ensuring adequate maintenance, and the safety of.
I am only a tenant. Is this my responsibility?
You have received the defect notice because it is sent to the property address. If you are a tenant, you should forward the notice to your property manager or your landlord as soon as possible for their action.
What happens if I’m unable to get the work repaired within the timeframe specified?
Contact Ausgrid’s Field Operations group. You may be able to negotiate an extension, depending on the defect.
Do fees apply?
It depends on the work. Where repairs involve disconnecting the property from the electricity network at the point where it connects to the distributor pole, a fee may apply to reconnect to the pole. Ausgrid may charge a re-inspection fee for an authorised network representative to inspect the installation and deem its compliance. Where the defect was caused by a contractor, payment of the re-inspection fee is their responsibility.
