Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution is a British company. Our name tells you what we do. We distribute power in the north of Scotland and central southern England. We are not the energy company that sends you a bill. We aren’t responsible for the electricity meter in your home or what happens beyond it. When you press a switch and the light comes on in homes, businesses, schools or hospitals – that is what we make sure happens in our areas.

If something unexpected causes a power cut in our regions, it is our job to fix it as quickly and as safely as possible. The better we are at doing our job, the less intrusive we should be in your lives. We thought you might be curious to know more about what we do.
