Living next to electrical equipment?

Sometimes customers are concerned about living close to electrical equipment and the Electric Magnetic Fields (EMF) generated from them.

Typically customers are concerned when:

  • They live next to a substation

  • They have over power lines or poles on their land

  • Home owners require tests to be carried out prior to home sale

Is living next to electrical equipment dangerous to my health?

We sometimes get asked questions about Electric Magnetic Fields and if there are any health concerns living next to electrical equipment. If you do have concerns you can find more information on the Energy Networks Association website.

If you still have concerns after reading the information, we can arrange for one of our specialist engineers to visit you, as we take all health risks very seriously. This test will consist of taking a number of readings at locations both in and around your home so that you can see how this compares to your household appliances. This can only be requested by the homeowner who will need to be present during the site visit. Following the visit we will provide you with a copy or our findings.

How long will this take?

We'll always aim to book you in for the next available appointment that is convenient for you.
