Investing in Scarborough

We're starting a £1 million investment programme to improve the reliability and resilience of the electricity network serving Scarborough.

Starting on 24 August 2020 and running until the end of 2021, the work focuses on replacing 7km of high voltage underground electricity cables dating back to the 1960s with a more modern and sustainable alternative.  This new cabling will be capable of meeting any future increase in the demand for power as the town develops, the population grows and more people swap their cars for electric vehicles.
