Xlinks, a power company co-founded by former Tesco Plc boss Dave Lewis, says it’s in talks with the British government over a project to import electricity from solar and wind farms in Morocco. 

If realized, the power cable would be able to supply 8% of the nation’s electricity demand directly from the north African nation. By using a variety of sources, including the link, the U.K. would be able to reach its net zero emissions target earlier, Lewis said in a statement on Friday.
