If you are concerned about the safety of any power lines, please call our emergency 24 hour contact centre on (03) 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Working near power lines can be fatal or lead to serious injury. Some people are more at risk of touching power lines because of their hobby or occupation – farmers and farm workers, builders and boaties. Be aware of the dangers of power lines and keep yourself safe.

A consent is required to work within 4m of overhead power lines or to excavate within 5m of a power pole.

If you require a quote for the line work before you apply for a consent, please contact one of the Orion authorised contractors.
