Coronavirus: Customer support

Important information about our services and the best ways to contact us.

Guernsey Electricity is following all relevant advice related to the containment of COVID-19. We’d like to reassure customers that we will continue to prioritise the continuity of electricity supply to our customers and have put in place appropriate steps to ensure this.


Call our Freephone number 0800 587 0285 or 01481 200700. Call this number if you are experiencing an electrical emergency, such as not being able to receive any electricity or have noticed anything dangerous. Lines are open 24 hours a day

Home Visits
Essential home visits may go ahead; however, an additional risk assessment will be carried out beforehand to ensure it is safe to do so for both, the customer and our electrician. Call 01481 200700. Lines are open Monday- Friday 09.00-17.00

Shop and deliveries 
Our showroom is now open but is operating differently. The safety and wellbeing of our customers and employees is essential.  For that reason, we will only be able to accept a limited number of customers into the store at any time, dependant on availability of shop assistants.  Customers will be required to maintain 2 meter distance from other customers and employees.  Any customer feeling unwell, for any reason, must not enter the premises.  All customers will be required to give their name and a contact telephone number on entry to the store, and will need to be accompanied by an assistant throughout their visit.  Hand sanitiser must be used on entry, and is available at points around the store.  Products will be cleaned regularly during the day.  We are currently unable to accept cash or cheques for payment of purchases.
