North Wales Connection


Ffurf Gymraeg/Welsh version

In North Wales, a number of low carbon energy projects are being proposed, and as a result we need to strengthen the existing network. This includes Horizon’s proposed nuclear power station at Wylfa of up to 3.6 gigawatts (GW), together with 2 GW of offshore Irish Sea wind energy being proposed by Celtic Array, which will also connect on Anglesey.

We have completed the first stage of public consultation to hear people’s views on the project and ask for feedback on our proposals. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

We will be announcing the next stage of our plans once we have considered all of the feedback received. If our preliminary preferred strategic option is taken forward, the next important stage would be the selection of a preferred route corridor across Wylfa to Pentir, a substation site near Bryncir and a final route alignment at the Glaslyn Estuary.

We're now carefully reviewing all of the responses we received during our first stage of consultation and producing a Feedback Report, which will explain the decisions made. This is a long project and there will be further opportunities for people to provide feedback and influence how the project progresses.

Whilst our first stage of consultation closed on 21 December 2012, we’re still keen to hear people’s comments and welcome feedback. For more detailed information about our proposals and how you can register your views, please visit our North Wales Connection Project website.
