Power Cut in the Oldham Area Today
A planned power cut is currently taking place in a area around Oldham. Power has been off all day, but should be back on at midnight tonight.
Planned power cuts are for carrying out necessary grid repairs. The maintenance team in the north west will always give you 10 days notice and never turn off the power before 9am. Though these help to minimise the disruption of the power outage, the inconvience and annoyance - espically in winter - for the people involved is still large. Even worse for businesses, who would potentially lose an entire working day.
