How much clearance should I have around my green dome?

Green domes should be clear and accessible at all times so that our crews or electrical contractors can access the electrical wiring as needed.

We may require access to repair/isolate power in an emergency, repair a fault, replace a damaged green dome cover or change the position of your electricity supply. By having the green domes visible and clear of interference, we can maintain and isolate the underground power with minimal disruption to customers.

To ensure access, green domes should be kept vertically unimpeded and have a 500mm clearance zone around the base of the unit. This includes installations such as fences or vegetation.

If the green dome has limited or poor access, it may result in delays to restoring your power during faults.

This clearance zone also ensures the green dome and its electrical wiring has sufficient ventilation to operate efficiently and safely.
