Sakaka Solar Power Plant is a testament to the potential of renewable energy to power our lives in a sustainable, cost-effective way.
Inaugurated in 2021, the Sakaka Solar Power Plant in Al Jouf is the first of its kind under the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Renewable Energy Initiative, led by the Ministry of Energy. Using state-of-the-art photovoltaic technology, the Plant generates electricity from the sun's rays and is made up of over 1.2 million solar panels arranged across 6 km² of land.
The Sakaka Solar Power Plant is also setting records in the solar industry. It has achieved a levelized cost of energy, coming in at just $0.023 per kWh. And with Saudi Arabia's unique geographical and climatic advantages, using renewable energy sources like this one is an economically attractive option for the Kingdom.
