National Grid to spend £1 billion connecting Hinkley Point C
The firm calculates it will take five to six years to link up the proposed 3GW plant, which is due to start generating in 2023 and has an estimated price tag of £16 billion.
For the first time the new ‘T-pylon’ (pictured) will be available for use on the project. National Grid said it would also use ‘undergrounding’ and other methods to keep the visual impact to a minimum.
