If you or someone residing at your business premises relies on Life Support Equipment, it is vital that you advise us as your energy retailer as well as your distributor.
What is the purpose of Life Support registration?
Registering for Life Support means that if your energy retailer or distributor plans to interrupt your power supply for maintenance, repairs or other works, they will let you know in advance so you can organise an alternative power source. Having a back-up plan in place is essential even if you are a registered Life Support customer. This is because unexpected power outages can occur without warning and you should have a plan to help you deal with an unexpected interruption to your power supply.
Registering for Life Support
If the approved life support equipment is fuelled by both electricity and gas, in addition to contacting us, you should also contact your gas retailer or distributor.
