  • Power Boxes Are Live, Watch Where You Drive

    Stay safe around electricity

    Unison power boxes are essential to deliver electricity to local homes and businesses. These boxes come in many different shapes, sizes and colours - some are near driveways. Make sure you always know where the power box is before entering or exiting a driveway and drive carefully!

  • Trees Near Power Lines?

    Contact us to stay safe

    If vegetation, such as trees, vines or plants on your property is growing too close to power lines, check with us and you could be eligible for a free trimming or removal service.

  • Look Up and Live

    Stay safe around electricity

    If you’re planning to carry out a task which puts you, machinery, tools or vehicles within four metres of a Unison power line or five metres of an underground cable or power box, make sure you apply for the correct permit to get the job done safely.
