UK Power Network
We own and maintain electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England making sure your lights stay on. We maintain and upgrade power equipment. We move and connect new electricity cables. Check if we cover your area here. We’ve changed names so you may know of us as the electricity board or other names.
Your electricity supplier is the company you choose to buy your electricity from, and who you pay your bills to. If you look on your bill - part of what you pay is given to UK Power Networks for running and maintaining the power cables in your area.
As an overview we are the right people to speak to:
- If there’s a power cut in your area
- If you need a new power supply or need to make changes to your existing supply
- If you need any maintenance carried out near or on overhead power lines, for example cutting trees back from power lines or covering overhead cables to protect them
To report a loss of power, or if you are concerned about the safety of their equipment, call one of the emergency numbers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
