Read our response to a consultation on a project to increase electrical capacity in Skye whilst also ensuring security of supply.

Scottish & Southern Electricity Networks has recently consulted on plans for a project to increase electrical capacity in Skye in order to enable the connection of new renewable generation located in the north of the island whilst also ensuring security of supply.

There is an existing 132kV overhead line which connects Fort Augustus – Skye, consisting of both steel tower and wood pole structures. The project proposes to increase the electrical capacity  through implementation of an additional line.
