What You Need to Know About Level 2 Electricians

Tasks that involve connecting your property to the electricity network, need more than just a standard electrician; you'll need a Level 2 electrician. 

Level 2 electricians in Sydney are authorised to handle more complex and hazardous tasks that go beyond the capabilities of ordinary electricians. Here’s everything you need to know about Level 2 electricians, their qualifications, the services they offer, and why you might need one.

What is a Level 2 Electrician?

A Level 2 electrician is a qualified electrician who has received additional training and accreditation to work on the distribution network of electricity providers. This allows them to manage tasks that involve direct connections to the electrical network, which can be both high voltage and highly hazardous.

Qualifications and Accreditation

Level 2 electricians have completed their regular electrician’s apprenticeship or training and have additionally gained specific qualifications that allow them to work on or near network providers' equipment. In NSW, for example, they must be accredited by the state’s electricity distributor, such as Ausgrid or Endeavour Energy. This accreditation ensures they have met strict requirements for safety and competency.

Services Provided by Level 2 Electricians

Level 2 electricians are are allowed to perform a range of tasks that include but are not limited to:

  1. Power Supply System Upgrades and Connections: They can connect your property to the power grid, upgrade your existing connection, and increase the phase supply from single to three-phase depending on your power requirements.
  2. Metering Services: Installation, repair, and replacement of various types of metres including smart metres that help in monitoring energy usage more effectively.
  3. Disconnections and Reconnections: They can legally disconnect and reconnect your property from and to the network. This is often required during major renovations or demolitions.
  4. Overhead and Underground Services: Level 2 electricians are trained to manage both overhead and underground electrical services. This includes repairing and installing overhead service lines, or running power lines underground to improve safety and aesthetics.
  5. Private Poles and Brackets: They can install and maintain private poles and brackets, which are often required in rural settings or large properties.

Why Hire a Level 2 Electrician?

Here are a few reasons why you might need the services of a Level 2 electrician:

  • Safety and Compliance: Electrical work that involves direct connection to the main electricity network can be dangerous. Level 2 electricians are equipped with the necessary training, experience, and tools to perform these tasks safely and in compliance with local regulations.
  • Handling Complex Issues: Whether it’s a service upgrade for handling increased load or a complex installation involving the power network, a Level 2 electrician has the expertise to handle complex issues that are beyond the scope of regular electricians.
  • Legal Requirements: For certain types of electrical work, especially those involving connection to the main electrical network, the law requires the involvement of a certified Level 2 electrician.
  • Quality Assurance: With a Level 2 electrician, you get assurance of quality work that not only meets the required standards but also ensures reliability and durability of the electrical systems installed.


If your project involves high voltage, connection to the electrical network, or any other complex electrical systems, hiring a Level 2 electrician is not just a good idea—it's often a legal requirement.

    Highly recommend Jason. I have used his services for 5 different things now from really big jobs to small. He replaced my electrical board, fixed my hot water service, and just sourced and installed a ceiling fan for me last week. He arrives quickly, is efficient and tidy, and answered all the questions I had. He's a nice guy and I will defiantly use his service again. 10/10
