Electricity Supply

105 is the free national phone number to report power cuts

  • Dialling 105 will put customers through to their local electricity network operator — the company that manages the cables, power lines and substations that deliver electricity into homes and businesses in their area.
  • 105 is just one of the ways that customers can contact their electricity network operator. They can also contact them by phone or via their website, and most network operators are on social media too.
  • Customers can call 105 no matter who they choose to buy electricity from.
  • Customers can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put anyone in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, they should call the emergency services too.

Vulnerable customers who would like to sign up to the Priority Services Register can still call 0800 169 9970.

Flooding and Water Management

Suffolk County Council maintains the ‘Report a flood in Suffolk’ webpage.  If you are aware of any areas which may have suffered from flooding, use the SCC reporting tool and make the relevant risk management authorities aware.
