SSEN returns to business as usual for its South distribution area
Following the impact of yesterday’s weather, which brought high winds and snow across SSEN’s central southern England electricity distribution network region, SSEN has this morning returned to business as usual.
Throughout the course of the event SSEN successfully reconnected power to around 20,000 homes, with supplies now restored to customers affected by yesterday’s high winds and snow.
Craig Gilroy, Director of Customer Operations, said:
“We understand how frustrating a loss of power can be, especially over the festive season, and I would like to thank our customers for their patience as our teams battled throughout the day and into the night to restore power following yesterday morning’s weather event. I’d also like to thank our front line and support teams for their dedication and hard work in restoring supplies in challenging conditions.
“We have now returned to business as usual, but with potential high winds forecast for later this week, we will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure we remain well prepared to respond to whatever further challenges the British winter has in store for us.”
