SP Energy Networks – Dirleton Works

What's Happening ?

SP Energy Networks are undertaking work to upgrade our electricity infrastructure in the area and as part of that we are investing £0.5 million to install 2.7 kilometres of new low voltage (LV) cable throughout Dirleton to modernise the network and improve resilience.

We know the community has experienced a significant number of faults and upgrading the LV network in Dirleton will improve network resilience. This work will also facilitate further connection of low carbon technologies as we transition towards Net Zero.

Andrew and Chris attended the village meeting wanted to follow up with a couple of updates:

  • The first leg of the works at the east of the village is complete and the site is now clear. There were some delays in clearance of barriers but that has been rectified and we thank the community for their patience.
  • The second leg of the works has now started, covering a stretch of the main road to the west. Work on the main road will be halted during the summer as requested by the local council. We have also been made aware of some big events in the coming weeks in the village, so we are working on accommodating those events and adapting our timelines and where the work is taking place.
