Commenting on the Government’s response on the Winser Report:
Keith Anderson, Chief Executive of ScottishPower said:
“This is a much-needed boost to get Britain back on track as a nation that builds infrastructure the rest of the world can envy.
“We were pioneers with the first electricity grids almost a century ago and these electricity superhighways are critical to bettering the lives of the nation – securing more green and home-grown energy and enabling the shift to clean transport and heating.
“A relentless focus on people, planning and the UK pipeline is key to unlocking the massive economic growth of these investments. We welcome the Government’s plans to support communities who host this vital national infrastructure and raise awareness of the positive long-term impact on society.”
