Scottish Solar Power is to build a new solar farm for ABP plc in north-west England – which will generate up to 220,000 kWh. The solar panels will be linked to the network which powers the port estate, providing sustainable energy and cutting the port’s carbon footprint. Surplus electricity will be exported to the national grid. A total of 960 solar panels are due to be installed on the northern side of Marshall Dock, adjacent to Carr’s Flour Mill at Port of Silloth, near Carlisle. Work will be completed in the coming months.
