Yellow Door Energy has commissioned a 1.2 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar park for Jabri Restaurant in Al-Salt, Jordan
The solar park covers an area of 22,000sqm and will generate 2,145 megawatt-hours of clean energy in the first year of operation. The sustainable energy provider said that this will reduce carbon emissions by 1,500t and meet over 70% of Jabri Restaurant’s annual energy consumption needs.
“Our family business was founded in 1935 in Amman, Jordan. Long-term sustainability, commitment to high quality and a passion for food has kept Jabri Restaurant successful for the past eight decades,” said Yousef Jabri, the second generation owner of Jabri Restaurants. “The solar park developed by Yellow Door Energy reduces our energy costs by 45% and moves us forward on our sustainability journey. We look forward to having the solar park generating clean renewable energy for our restaurants for generations to come.”
His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan told the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa in April 2019 that one-fifth of the country’s energy will be generated through renewables by 2020.
The solar park itself operates under a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) wheeling agreement and Yellow Door Energy is responsible for investing in, designing, building, commissioning, operating and maintaining the solar park.
Jeremy Crane, CEO and Co-Founder of Yellow Door Energy, said his company was “proud to support” Jabri Restaurant in its cost reduction and sustainability goals.
“Our solar park demonstrates Jabri Restaurants’ innovation stewardship and sustainability leadership, and we hope it will inspire other leading businesses to switch to clean energy,” he added.
