We’ve all experienced a power cut, struggling to find matches to light the candles, or frantically taking the batteries out of our TV remote to power the torch. It’s extremely frustrating and often confusing as to who to call for help. But as of September, the electricity network suppliers will be launching a new three digit number that you can call, for free from your mobile and landline, to report a power cut – the number is 105.
The electricity network suppliers, each who cover different regions across the UK, are the companies that manage and maintain the underground cables, overhead lines and substations that bring electricity into homes and businesses. They are also ultimately responsible for any power cuts. 105 will put you in direct contact with the right people, no matter where you live or who your energy supplier is.
You can also call 105 with any concerns you might have about the safety of over and underground cables or substations in your area, or for any other concerns you might have about what to do if you are in the middle of a power cut.
At Flow, we are proud to support this new initiative to ensure that our customers are able to seek help as quickly as possible.
