We don’t sell electricity and we don’t issue electricity bills, that is the role of your electricity supplier.

We’re investing £400 million in the electricity network across Merseyside to strengthen and secure our network to cope with the ever growing demand for electricity and also allow power generated from renewable sources to come back into the network from a variety of supply points.

We are actively recruiting new apprentices and graduates over the next few years to replenish our workforce and help us to deliver all of our investment projects.
