Storm Doris - Information for customers without power
Today we’re uniting with 26 energy and utility companies to launch our first joint skills strategy. The aim is to raise the profile of job opportunities, training and skills through to 2020 in an industry that provides power, light, clean drinking water and other crucial national infrastructure.
Our ‘big battery’ at Leighton Buzzard is big enough to charge an average smartphone over 1.2 million times, or give a talk time of approximately 1,800 years - but did you know it can store enough energy to give Rudolf and his reindeer pals the night off on Christmas Eve?
Christmas is a time of giving and I’m delighted to announce our employees raised over £34,000 this year for causes close to their hearts.
I was honoured to pick up a top award on behalf of UK Power Networks for our energywise project – an industry-leading scheme helping to brighten the lives of households that are struggling to pay their energy bills.
