What is happening in your area

A large part of our network is run through the ground hidden from view, especially in high density areas. These are the electricity cables that bring power to your homes and business.

If they need fixing or upgrading, sometimes we have no option but to dig up the road. This can involve digging and traffic management to be in place while our engineers safely carry out works.

We know this can have an impact on our customers' daily lives so we will do everything we can to minimise disruption and carry out works as quickly and safely as possible.

You can find if we are carrying out work in your area by searching on the One.Network map below. You can search for both current and future work by changing the dates in the location search bar as well as registering for email updates through the One.Network site, allowing you to be notified as soon as we publish an update relating to any works.

Projects

Our projects help us improve the environment we work in, reduce costs and build network resilience and security of supply for all our customers. Click on the links below to find out what we are up to across our business.

  • Subsea cables

    Fifty-nine Scottish islands are currently connected to our electricity network in the north of Scotland by submarine cables. As these cables naturally come to the end of their operational life, we are making arrangements to replace them to ensure a continued reliable electricity supply to Scotland's islands.

  • Innovation

    Developing smarter, more efficient networks is key to our company. We are researching new technologies, processes, and commercial arrangements.

  • Undergrounding our network

    We are investing over £15m in a project which will see the undergrounding of 90km of overhead lines in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Parks and National Scenic Areas in the north of Scotland and central southern England.

  • Victoria Park - East Howe Network Upgrade

    We're investing £2.49 million to boost Bournemouth’s electricity infrastructure. Our £2.49 million upgrade project to boost the resilience of the power supply to an area of the busy coastal town of Bournemouth will get underway in early spring.

  • Shetland Energy

    Shetland is not connected to the main GB electricity network, which means the islands rely entirely on local sources of generation for their power; in addition, the supply and demand of electricity must be balanced locally.

  • Poole - Wareham Network Upgrade

    We're making a multi-million pound investment to boost resilience and future-proof the electricity infrastructure of a Dorset town. The £3.7 million programme of upgrade works began on Wednesday 14 April 2021 and will benefit over 19,000 Poole residents.
