1 Mins read

Northern Ireland Electricity has changed it’s name to NIE Networks due to confusion over it’s role in relation to the energy grid.

NIE are responsible for the maintenance of the power grid in Northern Ireland, however they are not responsible for the supply of power to consumers, this is where the confusion lies.

Sara McClintock, Communications Manager for NIE clarified the company’s role in a simple statement saying.

“If there is a power cut, it’s our job at NIE Networks to fix it.”

The move has been welcomed by the Head of Energy at the Consumer Council of NI.
