Powering your community

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks carries electricity to over 3.7 million homes and businesses across the north of the central belt of Scotland and also central southern England.

Its 4,000 skilled workers help manage 130,000km of overhead lines and underground cables, 106,000 substations and over 100 subsea cables, powering island communities.

Winter brings unique challenges with high winds, rain and lightning which can damage power lines, poles and towers but our teams work 24 hours, 365 days a year to keep the lights on and power communities.
