What is a Level 2 Electrician?
Accredited by the NSW government, Level 2 electricians hold additional qualifications above their initial training allowing them to work with the electricity network. In order to undertake work on or near the electricity network, electricians need to be qualified to the appropriate level and class. While Level 1 electricians work solely on the distribution systems owned by the Supply Authority, a Level 2 electrician can move beyond the supply to support customers connected to the network. A Level 2 Accredited Service Provider (ASP) is able to perform work where low voltage customers are connected to the network via overhead or underground connections. As ASP/2 accredited electricians, 360 Degrees Sydney Electrical are able to install, repair, and maintain overhead lines between your residence and the supply. In addition to this, our Level 2 Electricians can work on meter installations, connect and disconnect the electricity supply, service private power poles, perform repairs and upgrades to meter boxes, and rectify defect notices.
Why do I need a Level 2 Electrician?
The risks associated with electrical installations are high, which is why the industry is heavily regulated and it is never a good idea to attempt any electrical work yourself. To ensure the safe, continuous supply of electricity to everyone and to comply with Australian legislation, all installations, upgrades and repairs involving the main power supply to your home must be carried out by a Level 2 Electrician. If you are planning a major renovation, building a new home or demolishing an old one, adding an extension or constructing a granny flat, you will need a Level 2 Electrician to disconnect and reconnect your power. This is not simply turning off the supply at the meter box and must never be done by anyone without a minimum of Level 2 accreditation.
Repair and maintenance to power lines become the responsibility of the homeowner at the point at which they are connected to the point of supply. This generally means that all wires, poles, fittings and attachments from the first low voltage pole on your property are privately owned. As these are directly connected to the electricity network, you will need a Level 2 electrician to carry out and repairs and maintenance on these.
