Let’s check if it’s a power cut.
The first step is easy. Take a look outside and if the streetlights are on and your neighbours still have power, it’s more likely to be an issue inside your home rather than a power cut.
Check your fuse box to make sure all your switches are on. If you’re on a Pay As You Go meter, make sure you have enough credit. If there are no tripped switches and you still can’t get to the bottom of it, give our office a call rather than attempting to fix anything yourself.
How to keep safe during a power cut
Contact your network operator to report the power cut. Your network operator is different from your energy supplier. Find you, network operator, by entering your postcode here.
Make sure your mobile phone is charged just in case you need to make an emergency call.
Switch off all electrical appliances, so if power comes back on and you're out, everything is safe.
Look out for your neighbours. They may not be as prepared as you.
Make sure you have torches and extra batteries. Leave a light on so you know when the power is back on.
If it's cold, wrap up warm and close internal doors to keep the heat in.
