Investment in our Network
Keeping you and your community informed
We are responsible for delivering a reliable, consistent and safe electricity supply to all of our customers, 24 hours a day, every day. We do this by investing millions of pounds each year to maintain and strengthen our network. We have provided below some details on how we will keep you and your community fully informed and involved when our work and future plans may affect you.
What do we do?
- We deliver a reliable, consistent and safe electricity supply to all of our customers, 24 hours a day, every day.
- In order to achieve this, we have to build necessary additional capacity into our network and refurbish, or replace, aging and inefficient parts of the network.
- We also have a legal requirement to offer customers connections on to the electrical network for developments, for example windfarms.
- Sometimes work will affect our services to you for example if we need access or even increased traffic however we will try at all times to keep any inconvenience to a minimum and to keep you informed throughout.
Why will we keep in touch with you?
- To ensure you know what we plan to do.
- To keep you informed of work we’re doing in your area.
- To allow you to speak to us and directly influence how work is carried out where it is possible to do so.

When will we involve you?

- When you may be affected by work taking place.
Why do we want you involved?
