Electrical EmergencyCall: 105
If there’s a power outage or electrical fault you should call 105. You will then be put through to your local network operator. Local network operators look after the safety and security of your electricity supply.
Alternatively, you can call your network operator directly. Scroll down to find your electricity network operator’s emergency contact number within the list.
To work out who your network operator is you’ll need the relevant two digits from your supply number, which is shown on your electricity bill. This number is made up of 13 digits. The two digits you need can be found in the bottom-left of the ‘S grid’. The image below shows an example of this.
