The question of whether living close to electricity equipment and magnetic fields is linked in any way to ill health is a long standing one. We take any suggestion of a risk to health extremely seriously so if this is worrying you or you need more information, please go to the Energy Networks Association website.

If you are still concerned after reading the research, we can visit you to test our electricity equipment.

The visit will include taking accurate readings from our equipment and show you how this compares to your household appliances. This visit usually takes about 30 minutes and we can give you a copy of the findings for you to keep.

How long until an engineer can visit me?
We’ll always aim to book you in for the next available appointment that is convenient for you. We can offer you a morning or afternoon appointment slot and you’ll have more choice if you book at least ten days in advance.

We will try to complete the work on that day however sometimes it isn’t always possible and we may need to arrange a second visit. Please note that there is the possibility that we may have to turn the power off temporarily whilst carrying out the work but we’ll tell you first.
