- being proactively contacted if there’s a known power outage in the local area
- receiving a support pack during storms and power outages containing essentials like torches, blankets, hand warmers
- having access to a dedicated welfare number during periods of storms and significant events.
Kendal Morris, Customer Service Director at SP Energy Networks said: “Customer safety is always our top priority and we are committed to supporting our local communities, particularly those customers who are in need of a little extra help. The free Priority Services Register provides invaluable support for our customers during planned and unplanned power outages, and I really encourage all those who are eligible to sign up today to ensure they receive the support they are entitled to”.
