You'll see us wearing personal protection equipment (PPE) such as face masks. If we need to enter your property to test the electricity line we will make contact with you first over the phone or from a distance in excess of 2M if we were unable to contact you prior. Please let our team know if you are isolating due to COVID-19.
When we enter your house please help us maintain at least 2M from your family members. If it is not possible to maintain the 2M distance we will be unable to restore electricity supply until it is possible to achieve the social distancing requirement.
Our priority remains the safety of customers and our employees. If you have any concerns please call us on 0800 353 2872.
