Power cuts: faults and outages

Severe weather, vandalism, third party damage and other events can affect the electricity network and leave you without power.

At Northern Ireland Electricity Networks (NIE Networks), we try to minimise this network damage through our maintenance, refurbishment, tree cutting programmes and our public safety campaigns.

Our teams work 24 hours a day to ensure that if there is a power cut it is resolved as quickly as possible.
