There are multiple types of pillars that you may come across in your area, all with a similar function - to get power safely and efficiently to your property.
The most common type is the green dome (also known as green pillar or mini pillar). Traditionally, the shape of these pillars has been dome-like, hence the nickname 'green dome'. There's also more of these types of pillars in the community than other types.
In 2018, we changed the standard pillar shape to rectangular for all new installations. So you'll see more of these popping up in the future.
Uni pillars are a larger version of a green dome. They are used to house larger cables and enable us to conduct switching work when conducting maintenance or fault repair work.
