Thankfully, power cuts are rare these days. However, UK Power Networks who maintain the electricity lines and cable that power over 8 million homes and businesses in London, the East and South East of England, want to make sure that everyone knows who to contact in the event of a cut and that free extra support is available to those who need it:
If calling from a landline: 0800 31 63 105
If calling from a mobile: 0333 32 32 105 or text POWER and your postcode to 80876

For those who may need extra support during a power cut, such as the elderly or those dependent on medical equipment, do take a look at the benefits of joining the free Priority Services Register.
