An Auckland company and a Manawatu man have been fined for carrying out unauthorised electrical work.

Tiscoski Renovation in Mt Albert was fined $2500 for paying an overseas backpacker to do electrical work on a home renovation project.

The work was later found to be unsafe by a registered electrician.

A man from Ashhurst, near Palmerston North, has also been fined $2500 over the installation of solar panels on a New Plymouth property.

The work was inspected and did not comply with standards.
