Network investment

At Northern Ireland Electricity Networks (NIE Networks), we work to five-year investment plans agreed by the Utility Regulator.

These plans include:

  • Maintenance of lines, cables and substations
  • Upgrade of identified substations, lines and cables
  • Tree cutting next to overhead lines
  • Major projects for network expansion to meet future infrastructure needs

Between 2012-2017 we are investing £341 million in Northern Ireland's electricity network to maintain our current service levels.
