How Much Do Electricians Charge Per Hour in Australia?

Local emergency electricians across the country charge according to rates prescribed by their respective laws. On average, the per-hour charge (not after hours) of a licensed electrician in Sydney is $80 to $130. However, this rate will vary depending on location and after hours work. 

The kind of installation and repair also significantly impacts the rate charged by a call out electrician. For example, if you require a specialised level 2 asp electrician, to repair private power poles, 3 phase upgrades, overhead / underground wiring, consumer mains etc, then their hourly rate will increase due to increased level of risk. We are qualified level 2 electricians here at The Local Electrician and can handle any level two related works.
