Yellow Door Energy, a leading sustainable energy provider for businesses, has commissioned a 1.2 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar park for Jabri Restaurant.
Located in Al-Salt, Jordan and covering an area of 22,000 square meters, this solar park will generate 2,145 megawatt-hours of clean energy in the first year of operation, equivalent to reducing carbon emissions by 1,500 tonnes. It will also meet over 70% of Jabri Restaurant’s annual energy consumption needs, providing clean energy for Jabri restaurants in Jordan.
The solar park operates under a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) wheeling agreement, which is a form of project financing wherein a private entity receives a concession from the private or public sector to finance, design, construct, own, and operate a facility stated in the contract. As the BOOT solar provider, Yellow Door Energy is responsible for investing in, designing, building, commissioning, operating and maintaining the solar park.
Jordan is a leader in the Middle East for its rapid adoption of renewable energy. By 2020, one-fifth of the country’s energy will be generated through renewables, as stated by His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan.
