National Grid Electricity Transmission
National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales. Every time a phone is plugged in, or a switch is turned on, we’ve played a part, connecting you to the electricity you need. We take electricity generated across England and Wales, including from windfarms and nuclear power stations, and transport it through our network, consisting of more than 7000 kilometres of overhead line, 2800 kilometres of underground cable and 350 substations, on to the distribution system, so it reaches homes and businesses. We’re investing in the network, connecting more and more low-carbon electricity – it’s a crucial role and pivotal in turning the UK’s net zero ambitions into reality.
