About Yorkshire GREEN

The Yorkshire GREEN Project will allow cleaner energy to flow into homes and businesses that need it in Yorkshire and beyond. It will provide a new connection and reinforcement on the electricity transmission system, whilst supporting ambitious Net Zero targets set by the government.

Have your say on our proposals

We need to build approximately 7km of new overhead lines, a number of sealing end compounds (that link together overhead lines and underground cables), underground cables and two substations, to link two existing overhead lines and to reinforce the system to increase the capacity of the network in the Yorkshire area. We will also need to undertake additional improvement, replacement, realignment and strengthening works to existing infrastructure, including existing overhead lines (conductors), fittings and pylons.

Where is Yorkshire GREEN?

Situated within Yorkshire, the Project spans from approximately 1.5km north-east of the village of Shipton to the existing Monk Fryston substation, located to the east of the A1 and immediately south of the A63. An interactive map of the project can be found here.

Overview of our proposals for Yorkshire GREEN

Yorkshire GREEN will involve both construction of new infrastructure and works to existing transmission infrastructure and facilities. This includes:



We have produced a short animation which provides an overview of the Yorkshire GREEN project. 












We carefully reviewed all the responses from our initial consultation held in early 2021. This has helped us to understand what local communities and our statutory stakeholders think about our early proposals. The feedback, along with detailed environmental assessment, has influenced the detailed design of our proposals which we are now presenting during this statutory consultation.

We are now holding a further, statutory consultation on the detailed proposals before we submit our Development Consent Order (DCO) application to the Planning Inspectorate in winter 2022/23. The view more information about our consultation, please visit our statutory consultation page.
