From time to time Western Power Distribution (WPD) carries out work in the electricity distribution system, for example, to maintain the electricity network or to connect new supplies. Inevitably this means electricity supplies have to be interrupted for practical and safety reasons until this work is completed.
Whilst WPD always endeavour to carry out their work with the minimum amount of inconvenience to their customers, there will be times when they have no choice but to interrupt the electricity supply.
What you can do:
- keep a torch handy and make sure you check its batteries
- keep your freezer door shut while the electricity supply is off
- make up flasks with hot drinks and food for use during the supply interruption
For further information and guidance, please see the Planned Interruptions to your Electricity Supply webpage.
