National Grid Electricity Transmission
We own and maintain the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales.
Every time a phone is plugged in or switch is turned on, we’ve played a part, connecting you to the electricity you need.
We're investing in the network to help connect more renewable and low carbon electricity, transporting it through our infrastructure of power lines and substations so it can reach the local networks. From there, your district network operator can then provide power to homes and businesses.
We play a crucial role in turning the UK’s net zero ambitions into reality and are working hard to ensure our future transmission system is flexible, adaptable and sustainable.
