A power outage is never a welcome occurrence when running a business. At best it’s a short-term annoyance; at worst it can spell disaster for your organisation. If your business isn’t prepared, it can result in downtime, a loss of data or even an inability to operate.
Advance warning of a scheduled power outage will allow you to take the necessary precautions and help ensure that you have back-up systems in place to protect your organisation. Power outage warnings are rare in the UK but Nationwide Utilities provides planned power outage warnings to advise organisations of when there is likely to be a power outage. This enables you and your staff to deal with the electricity outage with minimum disruption to your organisation. Power outage warnings give you the opportunity to implement continuity plans and secure your systems so that you can protect your business.
When a power cut strikes without warning, you need to know why it occurred and how long it’s likely to last. If you experience an unplanned electricity outage, below are the numbers you’ll need to get the answers you require.
