Saudi Electricity Seeks Solar Bids

Saudi Arabia’s state electricity utility is seeking bids from international developers to build two solar-power plants in the kingdom’s northern region.

The plants will each generate as much as 50 megawatts using photo-voltaic technology, which produces power directly for solar cells, according to a tender announcement that Saudi Electricity Co. posted on its website. The utility is asking international companies to submit expressions of interest for the projects by June 20. The plants will be located at Al-Jouf and Rafha, Saudi Electricity said.
