Priority Services

Priority Services provides support to customers with particular requirements due to age, ill health, a disability, mental illness or additional needs.

If you have particular requirements due to your age, ill health, a disability, mental illness or additional needs, register for Priority Services so that we can take this into account.  

If you require additional help from us, you may also need help from your energy supplier(s). Energy companies offer similar schemes and support.  

Find out more about how you can register for the Priority Services offered by your electricity distributor.

Electricity distributors

Electricity distributors also offer Priority Services, such as, password schemes or bills in large print/braille.

If you're medically dependent on electricity, elderly or disabled and potentially vulnerable in a power cut, or you have specific communication needs, you may want to sign up to your electricity distributor's Priority Services register.

In our region there are two companies that distribute electricity - the map below shows whether you live in the area supplied by Western Power Distribution (see area 7) or Scottish and Southern Electricity Network (area 9).

Find your electricity distributor.
