Electricity easements

Electricity easements

An electricity easement provides 'right of way' for Ausgrid to access, maintain and repair powerlines and substations on private property. While ownership of the land remains with the property, certain restrictions may apply to how the land can be used. Easements also exist for telephone lines, water and sewage mains and natural gas supply lines. Check the FAQs below or download the Living with Electricity Easements Brochure
