Solar Panels Maryport

Maryport, known as Alauna in Roman times, has been in existence for a very long time. Fishing is a proud tradition in Maryport and the town’s fishermen are to benefit from solar panels which are to be installed on their building in the docks. The solar panels are expected to reduce the costs of electricity, which can be considerable as the Maryport Fishing Company operates a chiller room and commercial ice machine for their members.

This project was financed by a voluntary donation from the Walney Extension offshore wind farm. Photography by Scott Kershaw (
