Vulnerable or Medically Dependent Customers
If, for reasons of age, health, disability or severe financial insecurity, disconnection of electricity may present a clear threat to you or a member of your household’s health or well-being, it’s important you contact our Customer Excellence Team. Medically dependent customer status can only be granted through the provision of a Notice of Medically Dependent Consumer Status. This form is available here or from your primary healthcare provider, who can discuss an emergency backup plan with you. We'll ensure this important information is flagged on your account.
