To report a power cut, call 105
Is there a power cut in my area? Do not call your electricity supplier. Electricity suppliers sell consumers energy and are not responsible for the power lines that connect your home or business to the National Grid network. Distribution network operators (DNOs) maintain the power lines that connect your home or business to the network. When you call 105, you will be put through to your DNO.
