Call to Ofgem to continue scheme to reduce visual impact of electricity power lines

Read a letter from 15 environmental NGOs urging industry regulator Ofgem to ensure that the framework for the next electricity price controls continues the current scheme of visual amenity allowances. These enable the electricity network operators to develop and implement projects to reduce the visual impact of existing power lines in, or significantly impacting on, important landscapes.  This could include important areas of wild land in designated landscapes.
