Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution is the owner of two electricity networks and one transmission network.
In addition to our primary operating areas where we have a monopoly, we have installed a number of individual distribution networks across Great Britain which we also manage.
SHE Transmission owns and maintains the 132kV and 275kV electricity transmission network in the north of Scotland, in some of the UK's most challenging terrain. Some of our circuits are situated over 750 metres above sea level and are up to 250 km long. Furthermore, our operating area contains a vast renewable energy resource and this is being exploited by wind and marine generation which is all dependent on SHE Transmission for transportation to the load centres to the south.
On 2 September 2010 SHE Transmission began a period of consultation to seek views on the future of electricity transmission in the north of Scotland. More details about our plans for our transmission network on available on the Transmission Price Control Review pages.
