How come it’s so cheap? (Phil Smith)
Ofgem has rejected the inter-connector to the Western Isles on grounds that a document sent from Scottish and Southern Energy lacked information.
The cost of this 80km cable stands at £780 million.
How on earth can the connector proposed for Shetland, at 320km four times the length of the Western Isles one, be estimated at only £550 million?. I await your answer.
