Cover overhead power lines to protect them

0800 029 4280

If you are thinking of working near or around our overhead electricity lines, we can provide protective covering (shrouding) to make it safe or replace the overhead line with fully insulated cables free-of-charge.

One of our engineers can complete this work for you, they’ll need you to be there at the property.

We will always aim to complete the work on that day however sometimes it isn’t always possible and we may need to arrange a second visit. Please note that there is the possibility that we may have to turn the power off temporarily whilst carrying out the work but we’ll tell you first.

How long until an engineer can visit me?
We’ll always aim to book you in for the next available appointment that is convenient for you. We can offer you a morning or afternoon appointment slot and you’ll have more choice if you book at least ten days in advance.
