The company responsible for maintaining the North West's electricity network has set out a draft plan to invest almost £2bn before 2028.

Electricity North West has pulled together the proposals following its largest-ever public consultation; a two-year programme that has seen it speak to more than 18,000 people who live and work in the area.

Lined up is an investment of £1.97bn between 2023 and 2028 as it aims to cut the number and duration of power cuts by 20 per cent, go even further in protecting the network from storms and floods, and continue increasing the capacity of the platform so it can accommodate the predicted rise in demand from lower-carbon technologies.

Before it submits its plans to energy regulator Ofgem in the summer, the organisation is again calling for those living and working in the region to have their say.
