Power Loss in Kilsyth

12/05/2021

Update 21 May 2021, 21:00

A fault occurred on Tuesday night in Kilsyth resulting in the loss of power to 59 homes. Our engineers attended site immediately and worked to restore power to all homes affected as quickly and safely as possible with power restored to everyone by 6pm on Wednesday evening.

We’re incredibly sorry to all the households affected by this fault, we know many people are still based from home right now and understand the impact a power outage can have on their day.

Due to the nature of the fault, our engineers needed to safely access and assess all properties affected to determine if any damage has occurred before reenergising the line and we would like to thank our customers for their help and patience as we carried out this work.

There is now more work to be done in the area to improve the resilience of the network and minimise the potential for any future faults. Tomorrow we will begin significant investment works to replace over 500 metres of underground cable in the area.

We will be engaging with the local community and our customers directly about the works and we will not leave the area until these works have been completed.
