• Investment in St Helens North

    I visited UK Power Reserve’s site in Newton Le Willows. Their £10m investment is a strong vote of confidence in St Helens borough as the best place in the North West for businesses to locate. The gas-fired facility will provide enough power for the equivalent of 20,000 homes.

    UK Power Reserve is one of the leading providers of low carbon electricity to the UK energy market. This site is generating power for local businesses and communities to meet their energy needs.

    UK Power Reserve employees Alessandra, and Stephen took me on a tour of the site. We spoke about the benefits that the company’s multi-million-pound investment will have in St Helens borough and how this can strengthen ties with the local community, ensure a balanced and resilient electricity system and boost businesses.

    This significant investment in St Helens North shows the confidence the business sector has in our local economy and workforce.
