King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KACARE) plans to construct solar energy-based power plants in five provinces soon, local media said.
The announcement comes with the KACARE’s intention to enter into the field of power production to provide citizens with alternative energy sources. Last week, KACARE announced plans to produce limited electric power from an old waste dump in Jeddah, a local daily said.
KACARE has received a request from the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) for the establishment of solar energy plants in Qaisumah, Rafha, Wadi Al-Duwasir, Mahd Al-Dhahab, and Shororah, the paper said quoting an informed source. Regulatory approvals have been completed for the implementation of the projects, the source said.
KACARE has received lands allocated for the proposed plants in the five areas and, in cooperation with SEC, prepared to accept proposals (bids) to construct the plants beginning from Mahd Al-Dhahab, Madinah Region, he said.
