Investing in Bradford

Between October 2019 and the end of 2022 we’re investing £32.2 million to improve the reliability and resilience of the electricity network serving Bradford.

We’re replacing seven of the major circuits that supply electricity to over two thirds of Bradford’s homes and businesses. This work will mean that the area’s electricity network will be capable of meeting the existing demand for power as well as any future increase in demand as the population grows and more households swap their cars for electric vehicles.
