We’re here to make sure your business has the information and support it needs should you ever experience a planned or unplanned power cut.

What support can you expect?

  • We will provide you with 30 days' notice of a planned power cut via a leaflet and email. With a reminder 48 hours before the start time by SMS or email.
  • We will make every effort to prevent the planned works being cancelled.
  • Any changes to the time scale we will keep you up to date with, although this is usually only required when we have complications during the work.
  • Sometimes we may need to access your land to complete the works and will contact you in advance to discuss further and make suitable arrangements.
  • We will provide advice and information to help you reduce the carbon emissions of your business. More information can be found here.
