Safety

At AusNet Services, you can be certain that safety comes first in everything we do. But when it comes to electricity in and around your property, we ask that you also make safety a priority too – whether it be overhead and/or underground.

For any property damage that disrupts your power supply, please contact a licensed electrical contractor to carry out an inspection and any necessary repairs. We will then arrange reconnection. If you notice a hazard, such as fallen powerlines or tree branches on powerlines, please be sure to keep a safe distance and immediately report a fault
