RWE Npower has sold two sites in Cumbria which it at previously promoted for a nuclear power station.
The governments Energy National Policy statement published in 2011 did not include the two sites and instead, named two others as their preferred option. Npower did not challenge the decision and therefore decided to sell the Kirksanton and Braystones sites near Millom to the existing tenants.
Npower thanked the local community for their engagement over the last few years.
