We own and operate the network of cables and power lines that transport electricity to around 3.5 million homes in the south of Scotland, Cheshire, Merseyside, North Shropshire and North Wales. We distribute the electricity on behalf of electricity supply companies and it is our role to operate and maintain the electrical supply system in these areas.
- Health & safety of our employees, contractors and the public
- Security of supply
- Customer Satisfaction - getting it right first time every time
- Delivery of capital investment to modernise the network and connect new customers
- Delivery of the Energy Policy
Our network is vast and to replace it today would cost more than £10bn. It needs to be maintained in a good state of repair therefore we undertake an extensive inspection regime to identify and act upon potential problems.
We operate in a regulated environment where our regulator Ofgem sets targets covering a 5 year period. Our assets and transmission and distribution licenses are owned by three wholly owned subsidiaries:
These act as an integrated business unit, with the aim of outperforming our regulatory targets and implementing our investment strategy to expand the network.
