There are times when we may need to interrupt the power supply so crews can safely carry out essential upgrades or planned maintenance to the electricity network.  If you rely on medical equipment, we encourage you to register as a life support customer.

Your safety is a priority for us. If you have any questions regarding the electricity supply to your life support equipment please contact us.
