We always aim to keep to the estimated times and the vast majority of planned interruptions are completed on schedule. However, occasionally  the work can overrun due to technical or safety reasons. The safety of our staff and customers has to get priority. As such, you should regard your Supply as being live at all times during an outage. It could be restored at any moment.  Real Time updates on Planned outages involving more than 10 customers are available on ESB Networks PowerCheck.

 No.We do not compensate customers for interruptions. It is a feature of electricity networks that lines have to be switched out from time to time in order to carry out maintenance. We appreciate the inconvenience that interruptions cause to our customers and we try wherever possible to carry out work while the lines are live. However, on some occasions, lines have to be switched out for safety reasons as it would  be too dangerous for our network repair crews to work on them. While we do our best to minimize these interruptions, they are necessary to ensure a better electricity service.
