We want to thank our customers for their patience following the effects of Storm Eunice and Storm Franklin, while we work to process payments to all those eligible. If you are yet to receive your payment please be assured we are working to complete these as soon as possible and will update this page as we progress.

Updated 20/02/2022

We appreciate what a difficult time it was for our customers who experienced a power cut caused by Storm Eunice and Storm Franklin which saw record wind speeds and damage across the South East and East of England, producing one months worth of faults over the five storm days. We thank you for your patience whilst we restored power.

We recognise that being without power for this extended period affects customers daily life so in addition to the statutory payment due at 48 hours without power, we will make an extra £50 payment.  
 
This means that, if you were impacted by a power cut between 18 February and 25 February 2022, you will be eligible to receive £50 after 24 hours without electricity, an additional £70 when you reach 48 hours, and an additional £70 thereafter for every 12 hours without power. 

There is no need for you to call us – we’ll contact everyone who is entitled to a payment by text message, email or letter in the coming days. If you prefer you can fill in our online claim form.

Payments are set by our regulator Ofgem and are known as Electricity Guaranteed Standards payments.
