A TRACK RECORD OF DELIVERING A VITAL PUBLIC SERVICE
No person should be left behind by decarbonisation. Britain’s network companies may be private, but they have a great track record of delivering a vital public service.
Britain’s energy network companies have a universal obligation of service to every man, woman and child in Britain. They are considered to be some of the best in the world in terms of their performance for the public – not just in terms operational performance but in fulfilling their social obligations.
Because our energy networks are structured around long-term investments, network companies have a vested interest in the long-term future and act responsibly on that basis.
Investment by networks benefits us all – networks pay returns to pensioners who used to work as teachers, coal miners.
