Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

A 400 MW solar PV plant is constructed in the Rabigh Region.
A new project company is established to build, own and operate the solar PV plant, and sells electricity to a local power company for 25 years from the planned COD.
The plant employs bifacial PV modules and single-ax trackers in order to achieve high efficiency in power generation.
This project supplies renewable energy to the grid electricity and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Saudi Arabia.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

477,129 tCO2-eq./year

= reference CO2 emissions
 - project CO2 emissions

 ・Reference CO2 emissions
  = Quantity of the electricity generated by the project [MWh/year]
   x Emission factor [tCO2/MWh]

 ・Project CO2 emissions
  = 0 [tCO2/year]
