What Our Clients Say:

I recently contacted Macquarie Power for an electrical pole and meter installation on my block in Lake Macquarie. Peter at Macquarie Power walked me through each stage in a way I could understand, as someone unfamiliar with the installation process. Every phone call was answered or returned promptly and each conversation was friendly and constructive. Macquarie Power delivered a fast and competitive quote that was within budget on completion of the project. They were very flexible to meet my unique schedule. They were always on time and the site was left clean and tidy. Peter at Macquarie Power even came by the site a couple of weeks after completion to ensure the job had met my expectations – I didn’t expect that! They did such a great job that I would highly recommend Macquarie Power for any electrical need! “

Replacing blown network electrical barge fuse.

Blown Service Fuse

Have you lost power to your house or business? This can be due to a number of reasons, but if your house is the only house in the street without power you’ve probably blown a service fuse. The service fuse is generally mounted under the eaves called the point of attachment where the cables meet your house. The main purpose of the service fuse is to protect the neighbouring properties and Ausgrid’s cables from an electrical fault in your properties. Generally, just a replacement fuse can be fitted and the problem is rectified.
