What are the advantages of underground wiring?
 
Although underground wiring may be more costly to install, there are several main advantages. Maintenance costs are lower, there are less transmission losses and less impact from extreme weather conditions. Underground power has a lower magnetic field, can absorb emergency power loads and because the wiring isn’t visible, it doesn’t affect the look of the landscape.
 
 
 
Can I do electrical installations myself?
 
In Australia, it is illegal to carry out your own electrical installations and there are strict penalties for doing so, varying from state to state. Doing your own electrical work is also dangerous, incorrectly wiring a property can result in electrocution or fire. If damage to people or property occurs due to faulty DIY wiring, your insurance will also be void.
