Saudi Arabia to build the world’s biggest solar power project

Times 29th March 2018, Saudi Arabia has announced a $200 billion plan to build the world’s biggest
solar-power project, which would end the country’s dependence on oil. The
project, which would result in panels taking up vast tracts of the desert
equivalent to a million football pitches, has been secured by Crown Prince
Mohammed bin Salman and could mark a change in the world’s environmental
management.

Under the terms of the arrangement, solar-power plants would
supply enough electricity not only for Saudi Arabia but much of the Middle
East. In doing so it would allow the country to export more oil for money
and, it is claimed, help in the spread of renewable, low-carbon energy
worldwide.   https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/world/saudi-arabia-plans-200bn-solar-park-for-an-oil-free-future-ghzsnhxt7

Telegraph 28th March 2018, Saudi Arabia has cast light on its $200bn (£141bn) plans to cut its
reliance on oil by rolling out the world’s most ambitious solar power
project through a deal with SoftBank. The agreement will drive investment
in a series of solar parks across the kingdom to be built by 2030, capable
of generating enough power for 150 million homes.   https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/03/28/saudi-arabia-curb-oil-addiction-141bn-softbank-solar-deal/
