Overview – Winter 2023
National Grid is continuing works to upgrade the connection to Hinkley Point C, EDF Energy's new power station, following the successful energisation of Shurton substation in June 2022.
In January 2023, we’ll start work to upgrade the existing 275,000 volt pylons near Stogursey and Shurton to connect to the new 400,000 volt T-pylons between Bridgwater and Loxton.
Thank you from everyone working on the project for your patience and understanding as we progress this vital work to connect six million homes and businesses to new sources of homegrown, low carbon energy.
