Improving the county's grid connection to serve a new nuclear power station and off shore windfarms alone would safeguard 1,000 jobs, while another 500 jobs would be safeguarded at companies that rise to the challenge of higher energy bills and become more energy efficient, it is claimed.

Simon Sjenitzer, strategy director at Cumbria Vision, said: "Cumbria needs to respond positively to climate change legislation so that we can diversify the economy and establish the county as a centre for energy generation and innovation.
"Locally our reward would be higher paid jobs, more investment, improvements in skills levels; while nationally Cumbria will be able to play an important role in meeting the twin challenges of energy security and climate change. These are issues close to everybody's heart as we have a responsibility to future generations to start acting now. We cannot Under Armour Blue And White Shoes
