The sparks gone out….. Power cut?

Who do you call 

105 

 

Call 105 for free on both your mobile and landline, all calls will put you through to your local network operator who manage the lines. Give your address to find out if you have a local power cut that’s affecting you.   

105 is just one of the ways that you can contact your electricity network operator. Our local network operator is Scottish and Southern Electricity, who can be contacted on their website (www.ssen.co.uk), phone and on their social media. 

You may have one even if your neighbours or streetlights look like they still have power. When streets and housing plans were originally put in there were 2 to 3 different electricity supplies (phases) used, so you could be on a separate supply to the other houses on your street. 

As we head towards winter, the weather changes, more wind and rain, more chances of a power cut. Most tend to happen during out of hours, meaning you could be faced with a call out charge for calling an electrician. To avoid this, eliminate one of the main causes of failed power before calling GF Electrical.
