Updated 11am, 25 December:

Our teams have worked through the night and have reconnected all the homes affected by yesterday’s fault in Tillicoultry. This morning our teams are continuing to work in the village with Clackmannanshire Council to resolve outstanding issues caused by the fault.

We would like to thank our customers for their patience and offer our sincere apologies to all those affected by the power cut.


24/12/2020

Earlier today a fault occurred in Tillicoultry, resulting in the loss of power to around 230 homes. We have more than 40 of our own engineers working on site along with additional engineering contractors supporting us to restore power.

Due to the nature of the fault, our engineers need to safely access and assess all properties affected to determine if any damage has occurred before reenergising the power line.

We are liaising with local resilience groups to ensure vulnerable customers have everything they need at this time. A mobile catering facility has been provided, serving hot food and drinks for customers affected.

We’re incredibly sorry to all the households affected, we know families are at home just now, preparing for Christmas Day and will be anxious to have their power restored. We are doing everything we can to make this happen as fast and as safely as we are able. We’re keeping the local community up-to-date as the situation progresses.
