As part of the RIIO-T1 price control, Ofgem introduced a new policy for electricity transmission owners (TOs) to reduce the visual impact of pre-existing infrastructure in nationally designated areas. The expenditure cap for all mitigation projects that come forward under the scheme during the RIIO-T1 price control is £500 million (2009/10 prices) in total.
This letter explains our determination on SHE Transmission’s proposals for reducing visual amenity impacts in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park under RIIO-T1 provisions for the mitigation of pre-existing infrastructure.
Alongside this letter, we’re publishing a notice under Part C of Special Condition 6G of the Electricity Transmission Licence on modifications to SHE Transmission’s electricity transmission licence and allowed revenue to implement our decision. Details of the changes are set out in the notice.
