Saudi's first solar rooftop plant for KAFD
200kW plant to be installed on rooftops of Parcels 5.07 and 5.08
The first solar rooftop in Saudi Arabia is to be installed at Parcels 5.07 and 5.08 at the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD). At close to 200kW, the solar plant will not only be the first, but also the largest, rooftop plant in Riyadh.
In collaboration with local partner Modern Times Technical Systems (MTTS), Conergy will be installing over 800 Conergy PowerPlus 230M modules on 1.7km of Conergy SunTop III mounting systems over a surface of 1,300m2.
The 330MWh of clean energy generated each year, which could supply 1,500 computers in the financial centre, will be fed into the power grid of the metropolis via 14 string inverters.
The solar plant will prevent the emission of 180t of carbon dioxide a year once it is connected to the grid in the first quarter of this year.
