Inspection of the network

The network is made up of several million assets and we have routine programmes of work to ensure that the assets remain reliable. Our strategy is to replace assets that are in poor condition and we collect data during inspections and maintenance to help us prioritise which assets are removed.

In the event of a power cut, it's important to be prepared. Take a moment to watch our videos on how to get ready for a power cut below, and if you need additional assistance, please reach out to our vulnerable customer service team using the link provided below. 

You can also refer to the details on your letter and call the local office should you require further information. Thank you for your understanding, we are committed to minimising these disturbances as much as possible.



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


What can you do?

Keep a torch handy and make sure you check its batteries.

Make up flasks with hot drinks and food for use during the supply interruption.

Keep you freezer door shut while the electricity supply is off.
