Power Cuts 

If you have a power cut call 105 - a new, free service. 105 is a new number that you can call to report or get information about a power cut. It will put you through to your local electricity network operator - the company that manages the cables, wires and substations that bring electricity into homes and businesses in your area. Regardless of where your electricity comes from, if you live in England, Scotland or wales you can call the number for free. 

You can also call 105 if you spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put you, or someone else, in danger. If there's a serious immediate risk, call the emergency services too. To find out more, go to http://www.powercut105.com/ 

UK Power Networks still runs a Priority Services Register for your constituents who may be more vulnerable in a power cut e.g. older people, those dependent on medical equipment, parents of young children etc. To join, they can call 0800 1699970, email psr@ukpowernetworks.co.uk or apply online at www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/priority
