Western Power Distribution

Western Power Distribution is one of largest DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) and it covers a large part of the UK. It is made up of 4 separate companies.

Western Power Distribution carries electricity from the high voltage transmission grid, which is owned and operated by the National Grid, to industrial, commercial and domestic users across all these areas. 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 Western Power are:

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