Come and talk to us

We are intending to submit a planning application to Perth and Kinross Council for a new electricity substation on land approximately 3 kilometres south from Tummel Bridge.

Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission plc (SHE Transmission), a subsidiary of SSE as part of Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN), is proposing that a new reactive power substation is connected in the Tummel Bridge area.

Connecting generation can cause changes to the voltage levels along affected circuits.  These changes could mean the network, without intervention, would not meet the voltage requirements.  Our network and system studies have shown that currently contracted generation will cause such a change, within the Tummel Bridge area, and will require reactive power support to be installed to maintain voltage levels.

We would like to extend an invitation to local people and interested parties to attend an exhibition to discuss our plans with the project team and let us know their views on the proposals.

Our Approach

Throughout the life of our projects, we aim to work positively with local communities and keep people informed about what we are doing. This is particularly important when we are developing a proposal and we want to understand what local people think about our plans. We endeavour to take the time to discuss proposals with local community councils, encourage engagement from the wider community and listen to the feedback we receive.

We will do our best to answer any questions and address issues or concerns that are raised with us. If our project progresses into construction, we will continue working closely with the local community to ensure that our work has as little impact on the lives of those living and working in the area and as many long term positive effects as possible.
