What will I need to complete this application?

What more do I need to know?

  • There are some physical clearances that are required between the electricity network and your equipment
  • If the pole you wish to remove/relocate has a streetlight on it you need to get local government approval before applying
  • If there are third party assets (e.g. telecommunication equipment) on the pole, we will organise for them to be relocated; these costs will appear in your quote
  • If you want to relocate the dome onto a neighbour’s property you will need to include their written approval with your application.

How much will it cost?

Relocating a low voltage pole (that doesn’t affect any other equipment) typically costs between $5,000 - $15,000 per pole.

The cost variation is quite high for this service as there are a wide variety of factors affecting price. When designing the plans for your request we always strive to minimise the cost to you.

What if I change my mind or want to cancel my application?

Sometimes your circumstances change and you may need to cancel or change the information within your application after you have submitted it to us.

If you wish to change the scope of work in your application we will first review the change and then either:

  • continue the project with the variation and invoice you for any additional materials, design work and remobilisation costs incurred. We will typically only take this approach when the change is very minor.

or

  •  if the change is significant we will cancel your project. You will need to submit a new application with your new requirements.

For cancelled applications we will invoice you for the costs incurred up to the point of cancellation (time and materials). If construction work has already commenced we will refund the difference from your access offer less any costs incurred.

Fees and charges

Following the cancellation, expiry, termination or variation of the Customer Work Request or any other aspect of the works or documentation relating to the works, the customer may be liable to pay an administration fee of $550 (inclusive of GST) and any additional costs incurred by Western Power. Further information can be found in our Terms and Conditions clauses 8 and 16.3.
