Community / Power to be switched off in Unst for essential repairs

SCOTTISH and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is advising that the power will be off in Unst on Saturday (4 April) for a three hour period in the morning to allow for essential repairs to the overhead electricity network.

A spokeswoman for the company said the works had become necessary following damage caused by recent adverse weather conditions.

To enable the company teams to safely carry out these repairs supplies will be switched off between 10am and 1pm, she added.

“Our customer contact teams are proactively contacting customers on our priority services register to keep them informed, with our engineers liaising with local shops at the heart of the community during the coronavirus pandemic to ensure they can continue to carry out vital work this weekend,” she said.

“We’d like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and reassure customers our teams will do everything they can to carry out these works as quickly as possible.”
