Will new overhead lines be built by the project?

No new overhead lines will be built as part of the project; all power generated by the project will be transmitted by underground (or submarine) cables to the National Grid substation. Any new overhead lines that may be required as part of wider reinforcements of the transmission system will be responsibility of National Grid. Any such works will have been identified as part of the annual GB wide Network Options Appraisal (NOA) that National Grid undertake. This process takes a holistic view of all future projects to determine the most efficient reinforcements for the entire network
