Engineers have completed a £1.5 million power upgrade to boost power supplies for residents in Brighton.
UK Power Networks has replaced a section of cable which was ready for renewal in the Withdean area of the city to maintain reliable supplies for local homes and businesses.
The crew dug trenches and installed ducts, then pulled through new cables and connected them to the existing electricity network.
Anthony Griffin, Project Manager at UK Power Networks, says, “This project is part of our ongoing programme of investment in the renewal of our networks across the South East to maintain reliable electricity supplies for homes and businesses, schools and hospitals.
“We want to thank residents for their patience while we upgraded the local electricity network.
“Our underground cables and electricity distribution substations deliver the power supplies which serve residents across Brighton, as well as enabling increasing use of low carbon technologies, such as electric vehicles and heat pumps.”
