I have failed to find any details on how the power station will export the power - was this aspect a separate DCO? If so, which one? If not, please could you signpost me to the details?

Advice given

The Applicant’s Planning Statement states at S.7 that the electrical connection is not part of the application. The Examining Authority's report explains that the ‘Proposed Development requires an electrical connection to the distribution network for export. However as this would be provided underground and pursuant to permitted development powers held by the distribution network operator, the DCO includes no provisions in respect of this connection.’ Further information can be found in the Applicant’s Grid Connection Statement and subsequent revision.
