Power Outages - People who need additional support
UK Power Networks is the company that owns and maintains electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England making sure your lights stay on. They maintain and upgrade power equipment and move and connect new electricity cables.
They understand that some people may need extra support during a power cut. They recommend that people add their details to their Priority Services Register. Although, this doesn’t necessarily mean they can get power back on more quickly, it does mean they can offer additional help and support.
By joining the register, customers will receive:
• A priority phone number that can be called 24 hours a day
• A welcome pack with useful advice about preparing for a power cut
• Regular text message or phone updates during a power cut
• Extra support from the British Red Cross
You can call them free on 0800 31 63 105 or sign up online here: http://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/priority
