Facilities access process


Third party companies with a registered ABN and Government may apply for access to SA Power Networks infrastructure.

Commercial signage

SA Power Networks does not allow attachment of commercial signage to our infrastructure. 

Electoral signage on Stobie poles and other infrastructure

Election signs must comply with requirements set out in a number of legislative instruments, including but not limited to, the Electoral Act 1985 and the Local Government Act 1999, council requirements and the requirements in NICC 210. Subject to compliance with these, electoral signage is permitted for State, Commonwealth and Local Government elections.

If a candidate chooses to attach signage to SA Power Networks infrastructure, the candidate agrees to indemnify SA Power Networks against any costs and losses it incurs relating to the placement of the election materials on the columns. Access the Election Material Indemnity Form.

More information

Further information can be found in our Network Information for Contractors and Customers (NICC) document, NICC 210 - Signage Banners and Temporary Equipment on SA Power Networks Assets. It includes information about which signs can be placed on Stobie poles owned by SA Power Networks.

Election Material Indemnity Form

SA Power Networks owns and operates many facilities across South Australia that are suitable for third parties to make use of, including Stobie poles, light poles, communications towers, optic fibre, sub stations, buildings and real estate.

An agreement between both parties that defines the access and commercial terms and conditions for your asset.

Costs are dependant on the type of equipment and location. We have straightforward pricing available.

Customer owned assets can generally be installed after completion of a Facilities Access Agreement. A Site Licence for the individual site will be issued to ensure that the site is accessible.

Depending on the type of asset to be installed, the asset may be installed by SA Power Networks, your own company technicians, or by a suitably accredited contractor.

Depending on its location, you may generally have access to your asset 24/7.

SA Power Networks is committed to ensuring the safety of the community and our employees. It is important that we ensure the suitable integration of third party assets on our infrastructure.
