Retail NI Welcomes Interconnector Planning Approval

Retail NI has strongly welcomed today’s decision to grant planning approval for the North-South Electricity Interconnector.

Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“This is excellent news for our economy as it is a investment in the future of our energy infrastructure, securing electricity supply and in the longer term, lower energy bills for our members”

“Retail NI had provided written and oral evidence at last year’s Planning Appeals hearing in favour of the application”

“Despite no Minister in place, the Department for Infrastructure made the right call to give full planning permission for this vital scheme”
