People who had their power cut off for more than two days are to receive double the amount of compensation set out by law after storm St Jude brought disruption to the region.
UK Power Networks are to offer the extra compensation as a goodwill gesture.
Those who were left without power for more than two days would be entitled to £54, double the normal amount. People still cut off after the initial 48 hour period will receive a further £54 for every 12 hours without electricity.
Compensation will be capped at £432.
UK Power Networks will send out letters to those eligible to claim this week.
There was travel disruption across the region from the storm in the early part of last week.
A lorry overturned in Mendlesham, rail services were cancelled between Diss and Norwich and London and some roads were closed, while high winds also knocked out power to parts of Stuston, Eye and Framlingham.
The village of Gissing was hit particularly badly by the storm.
A tree that fell down on a power cable in the Rectory Road area left 24 homes without electricity as well as the village pub, The Crown.
Owner Kevin Greenacre welcomed the news of the extra compensation.
“It is pretty good of them,” he said. “There were an awful lot of people affected.
“It is something they do not have to do - it is a goodwill gesture.”
Mr Greenacre, who estimates his pub lost between £1,000 and £1,500 in trade over the four days it was cut off added: “They had a lot of work to do.
“I know someone who works for UK Power Networks who worked 7am until midnight four days on the trot.
“I do honestly think they did pretty well to get everyone back on.
“It only affected 24 properties here and I understand they have to prioritise those areas with a lot more people.”
Nationally, over £1 million is set to be paid out to the 13,000 customers affected.
