We all depend on electricity and gas, but it needs to be treated with respect.

Gas Emergencies

0800 111 999* (This is a 24 hour emergency line)

If you smell gas, think you have a gas leak or have any concerns regarding carbon monoxide, immediately open all windows and doors and extinguish any naked flames including cigarettes, then call the Gas Emergency Services free on 0800 111 999*. This is a national number and is available to all areas.

Electrical Emergencies

Your electricity network operator looks after the safety and security of your electricity supply. In the event of an electrical emergency or power outage you can contact your individual operator by using the emergency contact numbers shown below*.

If you would simply like to enquire about guaranteed standards or a service provided by your electricity network operator, please use the general enquiry numbers*.

To identify your electricity distributor you’ll need the relevant two digits shown as part of your supply number on your electricity bill. This number is made up of 13 digits and shown in the bottom row of the ‘S grid’. The image below shows an example of this. Alternatively, you can call us on 0800 096 9000† to find out who your electricity distributor is.
