Ausgrid are the main suppliers of electricity to NSW, servicing approximately 1.8 million customers, representing around 4 million people and nearly everyone in the region relies on their network for their main power supply. Individual homes, buildings and commercial premises are connected to the main power supply, most often through overhead or underground cables and it is when there is work to be done to repair, upgrade, connect or disconnect this supply that you will require the services of a Level 2 electrician.
Summitline can provide an accredited and qualified Level 2 electrician in Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie and other regions within NSW at times when you need to disconnect or reconnect your electrical installations from or to the main power supply. This is of particular relevance at construction or demolition sites where a new permanent or temporary or power supply is likely to be required. Our Level 2 ASP (Accredited Service Provider) electricians servicing Newcastle are authorised to establish new power connections, both overhead and underground. When required we can install a new pole for overhead connections, or if you prefer to have you cables hidden underground, out of sight and protected from storms, we can take care of this for you too.
Within the framework of Level 2 electricians there are 4 sub-divisions, each with a particular set of accreditations and qualifications and it may be useful to understand the role of each.
A class 2A electrician is permitted to work on single and 3 phase connections or disconnections, at the connection point for fixed appliances such as water heaters and motors, whilst Class 2B and 2C are required for underground and overhead work as described earlier, and class 2D is required for all works that involve removing or replacing network metering and service equipment.
And whilst much such work is planned for there are times when unfortunately, you may require the services of an emergency Level 2 electrician in Newcastle, Hunter Valley or Lake Macquarie, and at Summitline we provide a 24-hour emergency service. You may require a repair to a point of attachment (POA), a temporary power supply as a result of unexpected damage, or most commonly, problems with a barge fuse, that is there to protect consumers from power overloads on the main network.
Furthermore, if you reside in an older property with a single phase supply that exhibits difficulties in managing with a growing demand for power at the hands of an ever increasing number of electricity hungry appliances, we can supply an ASP Level 2 electrician to Hunter Valley, Newcastle and beyond to assess your supply and make recommendations for a possible upgrade accordingly, mitigating the possibility of ongoing and future problems for you.
Working with electricity is highly dangerous and Australian laws strictly control those who can work with electricity – it is never appropriate for an unqualified and licenced person to undertake such work.
Make the right move, and contact us at Summitline Electrical to take care of all your level 2 electrical work.
