Planned power cuts

A Planned Power Cut

A planned power cut, unlike an unexpected (unplanned) power cut is one we can notify you about in advance, to help you plan your time with advice. Planned power cuts happen for safety reasons so that we can work safely on the network to carry out necessary work such as upgrades and maintenance, ensuring we always keep your power on.
