We're 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. 

We want to target the sections of our network which will provide the most visual improvement, and so your help in suggesting where we can underground the lines is really important. The video below explains more about the scheme, and the application form for you to fill in is at the foot of this page. 

Ofgem has set up a separate initiative for mitigating visual impacts with regards to Transmission infrastructure. This initiative is being run in parallel and where applicable we will seek to work closely with our Transmission company to ensure that stakeholder projects and proposals are well coordinated. 

Please visit the following for information on the Transmission initiative here. 

If you know of an Area of Natural Beauty, National Park, or Natural Scenic Area that could perhaps be improved by the removal of our overhead lines and wooden poles, we want to hear from you. The scheme is open to everyone, all we ask is that you click below to fill out our form and include a photograph of the area including the poles and overhead lines.
