Mains connection box - minimum height requirements

NECA Technical has received several calls from members frustrated when doing repair works to existing mains connection boxes, as they find Western Power crews are unable to re-connect them.

Please be advised that Western Power have now issued their requirements (click here to download the article) stating the minimum clearance be 2.5 metres from finished ground level to the lowest point of the service cable drop loop. 

NECA Technical suggests if you engage in this type of work that copies of the article are kept in the van to present to customers, as additional work opportunities exist to meet the requirements.
