The system will power Arab Jordan Investment Bank’s (AJIB) headquarters, and branches in the Amman area.

Designed and constructed by Wathba Energy, it was commissioned in July 2018 and is expected to generate seven gigawatt hours of electricity in the first year of operation.

Wathba Energy general manager Feras Batarseh said: “There is tremendous growth potential in Jordan’s solar market, and we congratulate AJIB for its leadership in the use of this affordable, renewable power source.

“SunPower’s high performance solar panels will optimize the value of this project for AJIB, by maximizing energy production and helping AJIB achieve its financial and operational goals.”

SunPower Executive Vice President Peter Aschenbrenner said: “Customers worldwide rely on SunPower solar panels for proven performance and reliability.

“Backed by a strong SunPower product and power warranty, the panels installed on the ground-mounted system can generate long-term value and cost-competitive solar power for 25 years or more.”

SunPower E-Series panels deliver an average 20.4% efficiency to maximize energy production in space constrained areas. Compared to conventional solar panels, E-Series panels produce up to 36% more power per panel, and 60% more energy per square foot over 25 years.
