Ministry of Energy, Mineral Resources initiates two significant tenders for installation of solar energy systems

(MENAFN) The Ministry of energy and Mineral Resources has initiated two significant tenders for the installation of solar energy systems that are connected to the electrical grid across various governorates in the Kingdom. This initiative is aimed at providing solar energy systems to the homes of National Aid Fund beneficiaries, ensuring the supply, installation, operation, and maintenance of all necessary equipment, including reverse transformers, with each system designed to have a capacity of 3 kilowatts.

The first tender encompasses the governorates of Al-Wasat, Mafraq, the Jordan Valley, Jerash, and Ajloun, which fall under the purview of the three distribution companies. Meanwhile, the second tender specifically targets the Irbid Governorate, operating under the license of the Irbid Electricity Company. Detailed information about these tenders is available on the ministry's website, reflecting a strong commitment to increasing energy accessibility for underprivileged communities.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has clarified that the installation of these solar energy systems for families supported by the National Aid Fund will be executed through the rural fils program. This benefit is intended for families with modest means, particularly those receiving aid from the National Aid Fund, whose average monthly electricity consumption does not exceed 300 kilowatts over a 12-month period. Notably, for families in the Jordan Valley and Aqaba regions, the consumption calculation period spans from November to April.

An annual report from the National Aid Fund revealed that in 2022, a total of 5,339 households from various governorates benefitted from the installation of renewable energy systems through the NAF cash transfer program. This collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources aims to reduce the financial strain on low-income families by lowering their electricity bills.

The report also provided a detailed breakdown of the beneficiaries: 1,828 families from Irbid Governorate, 267 from Balqa Governorate, 225 from Zarqa Governorate, 111 from Tafila Governorate, and 262 from the Capital Governorate. This comprehensive initiative highlights the government's dedication to fostering sustainable energy solutions and supporting vulnerable populations through innovative and impactful programs.
