Al Husainiyah power plant with a cost of $74 million, 50 MW greenfield solar park located in Ma’an Governorate (200 km south of Amman) in Jordan.
The plant will source over 200,000 panels (330Wp), as the last panel number 200,680 was manufactured in Philadelphia Solar’s manufacturing facility in Jordan.

The project aimed at supporting the government’s vision to enhance the security and affordability of its power sector by reducing its reliance on expensive imported fossil fuels, it is also supported the sustainability and expansion of this facility, along with the good-quality jobs it provided to approximately 375 employees, including 26 female employees in administrative and managerial positions.
The COD for this project will begin by May 2021.
