Onshore Project Details


As part of its proposals, the Navitus Bay Wind Park will require a high voltage cable to connect the renewable energy generated by the wind park to the national electricity grid. To avoid the long-term visual impacts associated with overhead power lines, the cables would be placed underground.  Check the maps here to see if your area may be part of the underground cable route.
