Emergency contacts

 

Power cuts tend to be local or regionally-based. They’re usually caused by a fault in the electricity wires supplying your region.

 

Local distribution companies own the electricity network in your area and the emergency telephone number for your area is printed on the top right hand corner of your bill. 

Alternatively, the Energy Networks Association website holds all of the contact details you need if you experience a power cut or can smell gas.
