Wiring to sheds and other structures

We know how important it is to have a light over your work in the home office, to keep the man-cave beers cold, power the sewing machines, or have the big screen on for game night - and to not have the trip hazard of a power cable running from the house. We can run underground or above-ground cables and get power to any outdoor structure.

While not every homeowner needs electricity for their shed, you may consider using electricity for things like:

  • Workspace lighting.
  • Providing a safer power supply for computers and other sensitive electronic devices.
  • Powering fridges, TVs, and other appliances if your garage is more of a man cave or office than a simple garden storage space.
  • Adding heat or cold when the weather changes.
  • Running power tools such as drill presses, circular saws, routers, and sewing machines.

You will not be able to power any of these items through an extension cord safely: a lot of the time, the distance travelled by the power across the cable will cause a “voltage drop”. The smaller conductor sizes used in modern leads often start at 230 volts; by the time they reach their destination, they may be down to about 180 volts. This causes issues for electric-powered tools, compressors, and welder equipment that don't handle voltage fluctuations or drops well. Remember, extension cords are a potential trip hazard, particularly if you have young children or animals, so only use them if you absolutely have to as a temporary solution.

To power your appliances and keep the power on safely in your shed, we can connect to the mains. You will most likely be required to install or upgrade your electrical panel and appropriate circuit breakers, which a professional electrician should do.

We can even install a dedicated circuit from the main switchboard to suit the shed's or workshop's power demands and protect the main house from high-powered tools like compressors. Power-hungry machinery may need 3-phase power, which will require a switchboard upgrade.

Your new power supply can be underground through trenching or overhead power - depending on the layout of your property, safety requirements, and budget.
