Electricity North West

Electricity North West is one of smaller DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) and it covers only one PES / Distribution area.

PES/DNO Area: Norweb, 16

Electricity North West carries electricity from the high voltage transmission grid, which is owned and operated by the National Grid, to industrial, commercial and domestic users across this area. The distribution network stops at the electricity meter, which is owned by the meter operator.

This means that the most common reasons for people to be dealing with Electricity North West are:

  • Power Cuts
  • New Connections
  • Upgrading or downgrading power supplies
  • Connecting generation to the grid
  • Finding out who your electricity supplier is
