Response from No Moor Pylons:

Although the Government approved the Hinkley C power station project in March 2013 no agreement has been reached with the developers and progress has now stalled. We can’t understand why National Grid is rushing ahead with this connection scheme. There is no timetable for the power plant. If they stopped and took a breath they could take account of other technologies that exist or are emerging.”

– Paul Hipwell, spokesman, No Moor Pylons
