Energy+ owns and maintains the electrical equipment, up to a point known as the demarcation point.  It is the property owner's responsibility to maintain and repair equipment that is customer-owned beyond the demarcation point.

The image below indicates the demarcation point of Energy+ maintained equipment and customer-owned equipment. Typically, customer-owned equipment includes the mast and meter base attached to the home. To learn more about demarcation points, you can view our Conditions of Service

Maintenance of Customer-Owned Equipment

In addition to the mast and meter base, if you have an overhead powerline on your property that you own, you are legally responsible to maintain the electrical equipment on your property – such as poles and overhead wires – in a safe manner and in compliance with  the Ontario Electrical Safety Code.  This includes safely maintaining tree growth and plant material around overhead powerlines to avoid potential electrical hazards.  ESA: Know Your Responsibilities - Privately Owned Powerline Assets
