Electricity North West complete power upgrade

Engineers from Electricity North West recently completed a major £500,000 project to upgrade the power network in Wildboarclough, Macclesfield in the Peak District National Park.

The network operator started to install 2.3km of new and efficient underground electricity cable in July.

Tom Woolley, secondary network south programme manager for Electricity North West, said: "Electricity is often taken for granted and it is something we all rely on for every aspect of our daily lives.

"This is why we are proud to have invested in this essential upgrade project to ensure local customers continue to get the power they need and when they need it for years to come.

David Rutley, MP for Macclesfield, said: "I am pleased to see the significant investment by Electricity North West to upgrade the electricity supply infrastructure for local residents in Wildboarclough.

"This important work will have clear benefits for the community, with a more reliable electricity supply helping to ensure that local residents' needs continue to be met into the future."
