Join our Priority Service Register

Our Priority Service Register (PSR) is a free service for those who might need a bit of extra help or be particularly vulnberable  during the winter months. The PSR can provide you with essential advice and support which includes keeping you updated when a power cut occurs to offering energy saving advice to keep your bills low.

You can join the PSR, if your household includes:

  • someone who is of pensionable age
  • someone under the age of 5
  • someone who is living with a chronic medical condition or is disabled
  • any other specific needs such as sight or hearing impairments

Why join the register?

  • We’ll provide information about what to do in the event of a power cut
  • If we need to interrupt your electricity supply for any reason we will provide advice and information about what to expect during the power cut
  • If your gas supply is interrupted we will provide alternative cooking and heating equipment within 4 hours of the interruption starting (unless more than 250 customers are effected in which case it may take a bit longer).
  • Where the interruption affects 250 or more customers and lasts longer than 48 hours, we’ll provide (after the initial 48 hours) access to a hot meal and to hot water (for customers with a medical need) every 24 hours.
  • You can chose your own password so you know our engineers are genuine
  • You can ask your supplier to send their bill to anyone who has agreed to receive it (for example a family member or carer)
