These Lancashire towns will be hit with power cuts this week

POWER CUTS are planned across Lancashire this week and they are set to disrupt the power for dozens of residents.

Electricity North West said they have planned power cuts so engineers can safely work on cables that supply power to the property.

Some reasons for them carrying out planned power cuts are:

  • Maintaining and investing in the network
  • New connections to the network
  • Tree cutting

The company said they “invest millions every year” into maintaining the local network.

They added: “We will always notify you in advance before we plan to interrupt your supply, unless it is an emergency situation we will not notify you.”

What causes un-planned power cuts?

According to Electricity North West, unplanned power cuts can be caused by many different factors such as:

  • theft of our equipment- sometimes our substations are broken in to and our equipment is taken
  • fire which damages the equipment on our network or in our substations
  • birds flying in to our overhead cables
  • deterioration or water seeping in to an aging cable
  • damages to cables from others for example:
    • customers digging in their own garden
    • contractors working in the public highway

The length of time to restore your electricity can vary depending on the reason for the power cut. We will work as quickly as we can to restore your electricity as we know how inconvenient this can be to your daily life.
