6-month safety inspections
To reconnect a premises that has not had the power on for 6 months or longer, you must organise a safety inspection.
This requirement also applies to a premises with an Aurora PAY AS YOU GO meter that has not received a credit purchase for 6 months.
To organise a safety inspection you will need to engage an independent licensed electrical contractor (EC). Once your EC has performed the safety inspection, an EWR will need to be sent to us to certify the premises is deemed ‘safe’ for reconnection.
Any costs incurred from the safety inspection are paid for by you.
New poles and wires
If you are building or renovating and need new poles and wires installed – either because there are none in place, or they need to be replaced – you need to contact your network distributor (TasNetworks).
Aurora Energy may charge an Application Fee of $110 during business hours and $275 after hours, depending on the installation.
