Saudi Arabia inaugurates 500 kW solar PV plant

Saudi Arabia has inaugurated a 500 kW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Farasan.

By Kari Williamson

The solar PV plant was developed by Saudi Electric Company (SEC) and Japanese Showa Shell. Showa Shell will own the project for up to 15 years before the assets are transferred to SEC.

The solar PV facility is part of SEC's efforts to introduce clean energy.

Saudi Arabia aims to reduce its use of fossil fuels and rather export these, according to Arab News.
