Majid Al Futtaim, the premier shopping mall, communitie­s, retail, and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and Yellow Door Energy, a Dubai based solar developer for commercial and industrial businesses in the Middle East and South Asia, have inaugurate­d a major 17-megawatt solar park in east Amman, Jordan.

The solar park will provide power to 35 Carrefour stores across Jordan, allowing each to operate entirely on clean energy.

Comprising more than 49,000 solar panels covering an area as large, the solar park generates more than 29 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy in the first year of operation — equivalent to reducing carbon emissions across Carrefour’s operations by 300,000 tonnes over the system’s lifetime.

“The private sector must prioritise and accelerate its plans to create positive change, which is exactly what we are doing in cooperatio­n with Yellow Door Energy,” said Chief Sustainabi­lity Officer At Majid Al Futtaim Holding Ibrahim Al Zu’bi.

“The entire Majid Al Futtaim ecosystem is geared towards setting the standard for sustainabl­e, responsibl­e, self-sufficient business as reflected by our net positive strategy. We are proud to be opening this solar park.”
