UK Power networks now operate a Priority Register for certain groups of people – especially useful after this Winter's Extreme weather causing Power Cuts for some of us. They now run a free Priority Services Register (PSR) for those who may need more support in the event of a power cut.
Every resident over the age of 60 in would be eligible to join the register. So are those residents with a disability, are blind or visually impaired, are chronically sick, dependent on medical equipment, or have young babies.
