This project is a new 25km 110kV transmission line and has now been completed.
In January 2014, EirGrid developed a Community Support Fund. We introduced this after a consultation process where we listened to public feedback.
In the case of the Mullingar Reinforcement, we have created a total fund of €360,000 to support local community projects. We will award grants to charities, or to community and voluntary organisations that operate near this new line. We have also developed an information leaflet which contains all the information you need.
Deadline for applications to the fund closed on 27 May.
The line is under construction. It is scheduled for completion in 2016.
We are running a pilot study for proximity payments as part of the Mullingar Reinforcement project. A brochure is available to download here which contains all the information you need.
