We aim to update our mapping system in real time where possible. Information available includes:
Fault reference number
Emergency service centre number to call for more information or to report other power cuts.
Areas affected by the network faults (by post code)*
Time the power went off
Time the next status update is due*
Time an engineer is expected to arrive*
Time the fault should be fixed*
The app displays pins on a map overlay showing areas affected by current power cuts. Tapping on this pin gives you a link to more information about the problem. Power Track also provides a summary list of reported power cuts.
Customers can register (and subsequently un-register) to receive automatic updates on any current power cut(s). These updates include:
Time the next status update is due*
Time an engineer is expected to arrive*
Time the fault is expected to be fixed*
Confirmation that the fault has been resolved*
Note: When the fault has been resolved it will be no longer visible on Power Track and the Push Notifications will no longer link to the fault.
In normal circumstances each reported power cut will be represented on the UK map by an individual pin. Where we have a number of concurrent power cuts in a particular area a merged pin will be displayed in the centre of the affected region. When a customer zooms into this region of the map the merged pin will split out into the individual fault pins.
There may be situations when severe weather conditions occur, which affects a large part of our network area(s). In these situations Power Track will provide an update for the whole affected area rather than for individual faults.

★ KitKat (Android 4.4) users FAQ
Issue: File Encryptor sub application - External SD Card is read only - message: EACCESS (Permission denied).
Answer: Android 4.4 does not allow write access to the external SD card to any app except for preinstalled apps (preinstalled by device, or system image manufacturer). We can do absolutely nothing about this issue. The only solution is to root your device and change permissions (for example: http://technofaq.org/posts/2014/04/fixing-external-sd-card-write-issue-on-android-kitkat ) or upgrade to Android 5.
Alternatively - Create the following directory (on your external SD card):
The app should have write permissions in this folder.

Sign up in mere minutes and Voltz starts tracking all the thousands of energy prices in the market. When a good deal comes up, Voltz sends you a personalised saving alert and with three more taps of the finger you can switch to that deal. As simple as that! It’s so easy you don’t even need a bill.
Voltz never stops looking out for you – Voltz will tell you when a tariff ends, or a substantially cheaper offer comes along. You’ll never miss out.
Voltz is free and truly impartial. You can compare every tariff of every supplier. No deal is hidden from view. Voltz does not even take commission from suppliers if you switch!
Voltz covers the Big Six energy suppliers as well as all the smaller providers:
Green Energy UK
Green Star Energy
What does Voltz do?
Voltz makes it incredibly easy to always get the best deal for your energy. Spend only a few minutes to create an account, tell us about your usage and switch. Get alerts on your phone when it is time to switch again. Our service tracks the tariff you are on, alerts you with a message to your mobile when we find something better and lets you switch again with a tap of the finger.
How does Voltz work?
Tell us where you live and how much energy you use. You can set a savings goal, a fixed date reminder or let us periodically sweep the market for you. Best deal alerts are sent to your mobile phone for maximum convenience. Swipe the alert, review the deal and tap to switch. Voltz automatically updates your account with your switch info and continues to scan the market in the background.
How is Voltz different from a comparison website?
Our service is about finding you the best energy deal without doing any work. You tell us once about your energy details and we will always keep you informed about the cheapest deals in the market. Voltz makes it possible to switch with just a tap of the finger and without providing any extra information – and you don’t have to be in front of a computer to do it.
Why should I use this service?
Many consumers find energy switching complicated and don’t trust the savings they are promised. Voltz makes it magically easy to switch to the cheapest deal and then stay on the cheapest deal instead of going back to an expensive standard rate. We continuously search the market in the background and tell you when we find a new cheapest deal that saves you money. We also remind you when you are on a fixed tariff that is about to expire.
Are you impartial?
Absolutely! We are the only comparison service that does not take any commission from the energy suppliers for switching your energy supply. That way we can never be tempted to hide any deal from you. We show you everything you need to know about your current and future tariff plan, including exit fees. We keep track of all your past switches, so you can use Voltz to remind yourself what deal you are on now and before.
Can I switch to every supplier and tariff in Great Britain with you?
Yes you can, and we are the only comparison service that lets you do this. You can switch electronically to most deals. When we cannot offer electronic switching we let you ring the supplier directly, provided the supplier has a published phone number. Either way, we put you straight through to the supplier and onto the cheapest deal.
How long does it take to switch?
Switching should take no more than 17 days. It is not yet possible to switch supplier instantly.
Does it cost money to switch?
No, Voltz is FREE and always will be FREE.

*** Planned features in next versions:
- Backup / Restore
Display an augmented reality (AR) topographic terrain view from the top of nearly 5500 hills and mountains of Scotland based on the hill data database maintained at 'http://www.hills-database.co.uk'.
Browse and display individual hills details, then select the annotated 3-D panoramic view option to create a representation of the 3-D surrounding topographic terrain (up to 30Km) with visible hills labelled. The panoramic display can be automatically updated via the device sensors to provide an augmented reality (AR) overlay view of the surrounding terrain in conjunction with the rear camera.
Simply point your device and the terrain is displayed and the visible hills are labelled on the terrain view. Other similar apps only account for the line-of-sight hill direction without considering the actual terrain between your viewpoint and a hill location, where nearer hills tend to obscure further away hills, irrespective of height. This app calculates the hills that are actually visible based on location and surrounding terrain.
Does not require an Internet connection to display terrain view (since you're not likely to have one at the top of a hill), all hill / terrain data is stored within the app.
The list of hills can be browsed manually, searched by name and filtered based on hill-type e.g. Munro etc. The filtered hills can also be displayed on a scaled map view (requires Internet connection), that allows for adaptive zooming i.e. more hills are shown as you zoom in.
Features of PRO (paid) version:
There is a GPS option to determine your current location automatically and display the surrounding annotated 3-D view anywhere within Scotland, not just hilltops. A preview of the nearby hills is also displayed on a scaled 'radar-view' that rotates with the device.
This version also allows for locations to be entered manually based on either grid reference or latitude/longitude and display the surrounding annotated 3-D view anywhere within Scotland, not just hilltops. A preview of the nearby hills is also display on a scaled 'radar-view' that rotates with the device. There is also the ability to use the map-view to select any location within Scotland and display the surrounding annotated 3-D view.
The PRO version allows for a 'pinch-zoom' facility on the 3-D panoramic view (if supported by device camera).
Note: Requires 'Google Play Services' App
