Priority Services

If you rely on electricity for medical equipment, or have other special needs we understand that a power cut can be worrying.

We like to keep contact information for our customers who are most vulnerable in the event of a power cut, although this doesn’t necessarily mean we can restore your power more quickly; it means we can offer you additional support.
