More than 400 homes and businesses across Cumbria will be hit by planned power cuts over the next week.
Electricity North West has scheduled a number of outages between Sunday, August 8, and Wednesday, August 11, as engineers are set to carry out work in the area.
It’s hoped the work will improve reliability of supplies in the county.
In total, 425 customers will be affected by the planned maintenance work set to take place in Grange, Kendal, and Penrith.
“We invest millions every year into maintaining the local network,” said Electricity North West.
“This helps us to ensure all areas of the North West region have a safe and secure supply of electricity for the future.
“Sometimes, this requires us to temporarily interrupt your supply so our engineers can work safely.
“We will always notify you in advance before we plan to interrupt your supply, unless it is an emergency situation we will not notify you.”
