Inaugurating the first and second phases of the National Renewable Energy Project in Yemen’s Al-Hudaydah Governorate, the President of the Supreme Political Council laid the foundation stone for the third and fourth phases, aimed at alleviating the electricity needs of Hodeidah’s residents. This includes a 20 MW solar energy project.


Additionally, he called for a continued reduction in electricity tariffs, particularly for the first 200 kilowatts of household consumption, priced at 100 riyals per kilowatt-hour year-round.

The President also initiated several projects funded by the Hodeidah Governorate Support and Development Fund, with a total cost of $2,518,488. These projects span various sectors, including agriculture, electricity, and water. They encompass the establishment of a feed factory for livestock, a 500-kilowatt solar station on Kamaran Island, and the installation of solar pumping systems in 32 projects across multiple directorates within the governorate.


The opening ceremony of the solar power station in Hodeidah was attended by several dignitaries, including the Head of the National Salvation Government, the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Services and Development, and the Governor of Hodeidah.
