Making sure that generation developments can connect to our network is one of our primary responsibilities as the owner of the network in the north of Scotland and we have a huge job to do over the coming years to make sure that our network is capable of connecting the planned additional generation capacity. For this reason, we have a major programme of investment underway which involves upgrading and reinforcing the network and fundamentally changing its historic role.

We make it easy to connect to our transmission network
