New phone number for reporting power cuts When the power goes out, it can leave people feeling unsure about what to do, with many wrongly thinking they should call the electricity supplier they pay their bill to. In order to solve this problem, a new phone number is being launched by electricity networks. From 6th September 2016, dialling 105 will connect callers to their local electricity network operator. 105 is available to electricity customers in England, Scotland and Wales. The number can be accessed from most landlines and mobile phones. It doesn’t matter who you choose to buy electricity from - anyone can call 105.
The public can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put them, or someone else, in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, the emergency services should be called too.

Please ring 0300 111 8000 or use the ‘Report it’ page, where photos can be attached, or the ‘Mystaffs’app page with separate links to download the app through Google Play store of iTunes.
