UK Power Networks delivers the electricity to homes and businesses across London the East and South East of England, including Glemsford and Stanstead, and it’s our job to make sure that the lights stay on.
Since 2010 we have reduced the frequency of power cuts by 42%, however we recognise that while power cuts are less frequent, when they do still occur they can be very worrying, especially to older people, people with chronic medical conditions or parents of very young children.
That’s why we have set up a ‘Priority Services Register’ to enable us to identify vulnerable people quickly in the event of a power cut and get them the help they need.
You can find more about our free Priority Service Register, including information about who is eligible to register here.
This winter we are keen to increase the number of people who are registered for help so we can provide the support they need quicker in case of a power cut.
