SSEN ‘well resourced’ for Storm Arwen
The company have been monitoring the weather and are reassuring customers that they are “well resourced” for Storm Arwen.
An SSEN spokeswoman said: “We’re well resourced so all of those power cuts are being addressed.
“We’ve got around 430 field staff in place at the moment, and they’re in the right place at the right time to deal with the areas we knew were going to be worst affected.”
SSEN is urging people to not approach any damage to its equipment and instead report it by calling 105 or using the website’s Power Track.
