Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks SSEN is one of the two Scottish companies that own the DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) and it covers a large part of Scotland, and Southern England. It owns two PES Areas

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks 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 Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks are:

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

Did you know your trip switches don't always move down when the power 'trips' at home?

If your power goes off, try resetting your fuse board to rule out any internal issues first. If this doesn't get you back up and running, just pop us a message on here or call 1 0 5 for help.
