Would you be at risk during a power cut? Your Distribution Network Operator, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is responsible for maintaining the substations and power lines that bring electricity to your home. They are separate from your electricity supplier. They have a free Priority Services Register for people who:
are dependent on electricity for home medical equipment, mobility equipment or to keep medicines cold
have special communication needs
would be vulnerable or require assistance during a prolonged power cut
People on SSEN's Priority Services Register get advanced notice of any planned interruptions to their electricity supply - allowing the householder to make any necessary preparations. They also get prioritised for re-connection if there is a power cut.
