UK Power Networks

UK Power Networks UKPN is one of the largest companies that own the DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) and it covers a significant part of south east England, including London. It owns three PES Areas

UK Power 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 UK Power Networks are:

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