Planned outages

From time to time National Grid carries out work in the electricity distribution system, for example, to maintain the electricity network or to connect new supplies. Inevitably this means electricity supplies have to be interrupted for practical and safety reasons until this work is completed.

Whilst we always endeavour to carry out our work with the minimum amount of inconvenience to our customers, there will be times when we have no choice but to interrupt the electricity supply. Even in these cases we try to opt for the times which are best for the majority of our customers, but because of our extensive rolling work programme, this is not always possible.
