Responsibilities for privately-owned power lines
If overhead power lines aren't inspected and maintained, they can clash or be brought down by strong winds, falling trees and branches, creating a serious safety and bushfire risk.
Just as network operators are required to maintain the power lines and poles that they own, customers with privately-owned power lines are required to do the same.
