North East Pylon Pressure (NEPP) is the overall representative group for the people of Ireland’s North East who advocate that high power electric cables should go underground.

We are not professional protesters. We are not ‘rent-a-crowd’. We are ordinary, decent people who have been galvanized into action in this campaign because of the threat we face. We are not opposed to progress.In fact,we favour increased recourse to renewable energy sources for the generation of electricity. We also favour a strengthened national electricity grid. But not at any price. Not at the price of people’s lives and health and irreparable damage to our environment, heritage and livelihoods.

There is deep frustration in rural communities on this issue and how it has unfolded. EirGrid wants to burden us with an unsafe, unsightly and outmoded technology. Our campaign looks to our elected representatives to have the vision and the knowledge to understand the value of an underground strategy.

NEPP favours increased recourse to renewable energy sources for the generation of electricity. NEPP also favours a strengthened national electricity grid, and, as ordinary hardworking citizens – NEPP supports economic development. NEPP stresses, however, that this must not be at any price: not at the price of people’s lives and health; nor at  the price of irreparable damage to the environment, heritage and livelihoods.

Such damages are considerable – on our environment, on our tourist industry, on our heritage, on the health of ourselves, our children and our children’s children, and the massive unjustifiable financial cost of devaluation and depreciation of peoples land and property.

The development of such an OHTL development would cut a swathe of sterilized, blighted ground at least a kilometre wide through the heart of Ireland’s heritage capital.

This is a cost that is not worth paying when there is an alternative.
