Northern PowerGrid

Northern PowerGrid is one of the six companies that own the DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) and it covers a large part of Northern England. It owns two PES Areas

Northern PowerGrid carries electricity from the high voltage transmission grid, which is owned and operated by the National Grid, to industrial, commercial and domestic users across these regions. 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 Northern PowerGrid are:

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

Good Afternoon, Lee Terry, Brandon & James are here at #TeamPowergrid to answer your power related questions. You can also check on #PowerCuts in the North-East at our website

Power cuts are rare thanks to our investment of around £1m everyday in the region's power network, but if the lights do go out report your power cut online to get instant information.
