Installations and Repairs Needing a Level 2 ASP Expert

A Level 2 Electrician is someone who was accredited by the Accredited Service Provider (ASP) Scheme. This program created a pool of qualified Level 2 ASP professionals who are skilled to do work with equipment connected to a live electrical network. For example, an L2 electrician is the only electrician who can create a service line that will connect the house or commercial building with the main electrical distribution network. A level two electrician is required when installing or repairing certain pieces of equipment. Given the complexity and nature of these works, someone who has spent time learning the ins and outs of these pieces of equipment is needed when dealing with them. Here are some repairs that require the expertise of a level two electrician.

Electrical Defect Notices

Homes and commercial buildings in NSW regularly undergoes inspections led by Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy or Essential Energy. This inspection aims to ensure the safe delivery of electricity to customers of these electric utilities. When there is defective or missing equipment on the property, the inspector issues an electrical defect notice. This notice lists all the needed repairs and/or replacements so that the customer can continue enjoying service from their electricity provider.

Private Power Pole Installation and Repair

Private power poles are common among properties in Sydney. This equipment not only offers property owners the freedom to choose where the service line will enter their property, but it also acts as another layer of protection. Having a private pole protects any building against hazards associated with being directly connected to the main distribution line.

Consumer Main Upgrades

Issues with the consumer main is another reason why property owners receive an electrical defect notice. Most old buildings in Sydney continue to use their old and outdated Vulcanised Indian Rubber (VIR) cables. These old cables are no longer capable of handling modern power demand and thus increase the chances of electrical fire and other consequences. It also impacts human health as it contains asbestos. Our ASP Level 2 electricians are trained and experienced in handling upgrading to Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) consumer mains. This modern cable offers several benefits, including stronger insulation and increased cut-through resistance.
