Emergency numbers

The electricity supply in your area is taken care of by your local electricity distribution company. They're responsible for the wires and cables that connect your business to the National Grid. Opus Energy supplies the electricity that you get through these wires and cables.

If you experience a power outage or any other type of electrical emergency, please contact your local distribution company.
