We receive a lot of questions about how your household energy bills are made up, and which parts of your bill relate to National Grid.

The bill you receive from your energy supplier is made up of a number of separate charges. Some of these charges are based on the different stages through which electricity makes its way from the producers to your home, so we explain this journey and where National Grid fits in.

Our stories

Wind turbine in the sea seen from above - for National Grid's multi-purpose interconnector (MPI) story

What are multi-purpose interconnectors?

Multi-purpose interconnectors (known as MPIs) are subsea electricity cables that connect the UK’s electricity system to those of neighbouring countries and also connect offshore power generators – such as wind farms – to the shore.

What is a T-pylon?

The T-pylon is the first new design for UK electricity pylons in nearly 100 years and is a potential technology choice for future electricity transmission network projects, alongside the continued use of traditional lattice pylons.

Can wind turbine blades be recycled?

While wind power can generate clean, cheap, zero carbon electricity, what happens to old wind turbine blades and can they be recycled at the end of their operational lives?
