UK Power Networks: Priority Service Register and energy efficiency advice leaflet

 

In the event of an emergency, whether that is a power cut, issue with our equipment or even roadworks, it is important that people (especially vulnerable residents) have easy access to our emergency contact details. As you may know, we run a free Priority Services Register (PSR) for those who may need more support in the event of a power cut.

 

Every resident over the age of 60 in would be eligible to join the register. So are those residents with a disability, are blind or visually impaired, are chronically sick, dependent on medical equipment, or have young babies.

 

We have also produced a leaflet that provides advice on energy efficiency. It also contains useful contact details of other organisations who are able to offer advice for residents on keeping warm and reducing energy bills. This can be found on our website here: http://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/internet/en/help-and-advice/documents/EE_leaflet.pdf.
