The UK Electricity Industry
National Grid, on behalf of the UK Electricity Industry, operates an EMF Unit as a single point of contact for all EMF enquiries.
If you have any questions about EMFs, ring
- 0845 702 3270 (from the UK)
- If you prefer e-mail click here: Contact us
If your enquiry concerns a National Grid power line or substation, the staff of the EMF Unit will be able to deal directly with it. If it involves a line owned by one of the Distribution Companies, they will be able to put you in touch with the right company.
Whichever electricity company you talk to, they will be able to provide literature and further information, tell you more about the particular power line that concerns you, and if appropriate they may be able to visit your home to make measurements of fields.
The UK Energy Networks Association web site contains information on industry policies on EMFs.
