Network investment programme

Counties Power undertakes a comprehensive network investment programme to ensure a safe, well-maintained and reliable network.  This year we're continuing to invest in new network network builds as well as upgrading existing infrastructure. While ongoing maintenance programmes are carried out across the network all year, some of the larger projects are outlined below.  Please note that these projects may be subject to change. 

A series of planned shutdowns are usually required to carry out these works, with all affected customers notified at least 10 working days prior.  You can also check planned shutdowns on our outages map found at or get our new smartphone app now at in your smartphone internet browser.
