Benefits of Underground Electrical Service Lines

Enhanced Aesthetics: One of the key advantages of underground electrical work is its ability to improve the visual appeal of your property. Unlike overhead power lines that can clutter the landscape, underground electrical service lines are hidden from view. This creates a cleaner and more appealing environment, allowing your property’s natural beauty to shine.

Increased Reliability: Underground power line installation offers improved reliability compared to overhead lines. Underground cables are less susceptible to damage caused by severe weather conditions such as storms, high winds, or falling trees. This reduces the risk of power outages and ensures a consistent supply of electricity to your home or business.

Reduced Maintenance: Another significant advantage of underground electrical installations is the reduced maintenance required. Since underground cables are shielded from external elements, they experience fewer issues such as corrosion, wear, or animal interference. As a result, the need for regular repairs and maintenance is significantly minimised, saving you time and money in the long run.

Enhanced Safety: Underground electrical work prioritises safety for both individuals and the surrounding environment. By eliminating the need for overhead power lines, the risk of accidents, such as electrical shocks or falling objects, is greatly reduced. Additionally, underground cables are less prone to damage caused by extreme weather conditions or accidental contact, ensuring a safer electrical infrastructure overall.

Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions

Always Hire Professionals: When it comes to underground electrical installations, it is crucial to hire experienced and licensed electricians like those at Jabel Electrical Services. Professionals have the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to handle the complexities involved in these projects, ensuring the safety and reliability of the installation.

Proper Cable Placement: Underground power line installation requires careful planning and precise cable placement. It is essential to follow local regulations and guidelines to ensure proper depth, separation, and protection of the cables. This prevents accidental damage during construction or future excavation activities.

Call Before You Dig: Before starting any excavation work on your property, it is essential to contact your local utility locating service. They will identify the location of existing underground utilities, including electrical lines, to prevent accidental damage during digging or trenching.

Grounding and Insulation: Adequate grounding and insulation are vital for the safety and optimal performance of underground electrical service lines. Proper grounding protects against electrical faults and helps redirect current in the event of a fault. Insulation prevents electrical leakage and reduces the risk of shocks or electrical fires.

For underground service, you need to use cables specifically designed and sized for underground installations. Jabel Electrical will assess your site and your electrical system needs in determining the appropriate cabling for you.

The depth requirement for burying a service cable can vary. We recommend burying the cable at a minimum depth of 60 centimetres or 600 millimetres to protect it from accidental damage, however, this will always be site dependent. Jabel Electrical will assess your site to determine the appropriate depth for your cabling.

Jabel Electrical recommends the use of conduit in underground electrical work.

In Australia, electrical conduit usually needs to be buried at a depth of at least 600 millimetres (60 centimetres) from the top of the conduit. Your trenching will need to be at a depth that allows the laying of your conduit and filling to a depth of 600 millimetres above the top of the conduit.

The three main types of underground cables commonly used for electrical installations are as follows:

  • Power cables: These cables are designed to carry high voltage electricity from the source to distribution networks or individual properties.
  • Communication cables: These cables are used for transmitting data, voice, and video signals for telecommunications purposes.
  • Control cables: These cables are utilised for transmitting control signals in various systems, such as automation and industrial applications.

For a 100 amp underground service, the recommended wire size typically depends on the distance between the power source and the load. To determine the appropriate wire size, factors such as the voltage, conductor material (e.g., copper or aluminium), and voltage drop considerations need to be taken into account. It is crucial to consult with a licensed electrician or refer to local electrical codes to ensure the correct wire size is used for your specific installation.
