All the electricity in your home runs through the point of attachment and meter panel so any failure could lead to lengthy periods without power. The number of appliances you can operate also depends on the capacity of your mains cables.

We want to work with you to find the right fit for your electrical needs, big or small. Whether you want that new downlight installed, or you want to rewire your whole house, we're here to make that happen.
The consumer mains cable is a cable that runs from the point of attachment to the electricity meter to your switchboard. All the power in your house runs through this cable before being distributed across your power and lighting circuits. Your ‘supply’ (or the amount of power your house has access to) is limited to the capacity of this cable.
The POA is where the electricity cables from the street connect to your home. If you have overhead cables, the POA is usually on the front face of your house, at the edge of your roof line.
Anything street-side of this point is owned and maintained by the Electricity Distributor, while anything from the POA inwards (aside from the electricity meter) is the homeowner’s responsibility. All the electricity in your house runs through this single point, so any failure at the POA could lead to lengthy periods without power.
A meter box is where your electricity meter is housed. It is usually either a timber/metal box and may also have your switchboard in it as well. A meter panel is a small timber/metal panel located on some older houses which have the electricity meter exposed near the front door. The meter box/panel and switchboard is the responsibility of the home owner/body corporate, but the electricity meter is owned by the electricity distributor.
If you need more capacity or have an issue with your current mains power, Kenner Electrics is here to help. Get in touch with our office and one of our friendly team members will be able to walk you through the upgrade process.

The service was incredible. It was not just the workmanship but the after service support and follow up that made the real difference. Thanks to the team from the bottom of my heart for making all our electrical problems go away and so efficiently as well.
Great customer service throughout - from the time of booking to job completion. Punctual, courteous and professional... went above and beyond to help and provided useful advice. Truly outstanding service and attitude.
Had an issue with our smoke detectors and the heat lights in the bathroom. After chatting online with their customer service, an electrician was sent out to our home within a couple of hours and fix has been wonderful so far. They were also great with other inquiries for other installations. Would not hesitate to call on Kenner Electrics again.
Have used Kenner Electrics 3 times in recent months. Very happy with their quick, reliable and friendly service. Will definitely use them again. In fact I now refer to them as "our electricians".
