Compensation for Christmas power cut victims


It has been confirmed that residents in the South of England who were left without power during the Christmas period will receive compensation.

Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) said it would pay £54 to all business and domestic customers who were left without electricity for two days.

A further payment of £54 would be made for each subsequent 12-hour period where customers were left without power.

Additionally, those who were left without power on Christmas day will receive a payment of £75.

Many areas of the country were affected by adverse weather during the Christmas period, with the south east of England experiencing major disruption. Residents in Cumbria were also left without power due to storms and flooding.

Customers who are due compensation will receive a letter from SSEPD and a cheque should be received within three to five weeks.
