TotalEnergies-led group nails financing for 119 MW of solar in Saudi Arabia


An international consortium – led by TotalEnergies, Toyota Tsusho, and Altaaqa Renewable Energy – has secured project financing from Apicorp and Riyadh Bank for a utility-scale solar project in Saudi Arabia.

The group secured a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the project with Riyadh-based Saudi Power Procurement Co. in an auction held between 2021 and 2022. It offered a levelized cost of energy of SAR0.0700059 ($0.0186920)/kWh. The plant will have a capacity of 119 MW and will be located in Wadi Al Dawasir, in the Dawasir Valley.
