A new solar power plant in Hama produces 1.8 million watts hours annually

A new "solar" renewable power plant  is on its way to completion soon in Hama Governorate, in preparation for putting it into service and investment after connecting it with the public electricity network within 3 months.

This station will be a substitute for the public electrical network, as it will be used for the benefit of the electrical system in the governorate for a period of 25 years. It is the result of cooperation between the public and private sectors.


Ghassan Khlaif, the owner and investor of the station, told SANA reporter that this station is an extension of the first station that he owns and invests in since last year. It constitutes a promising experience in the production of electricity with renewable energy as an alternative to electricity produced by relying on fossil fuels, whether oil, gas or fuel.

In turn, Head of the Department of Energy Conservation at Hama Electricity Company, Eng. Mikhlif Al-Hassan, said that the station project is in line with the Ministry of Electricity’s directions in encouraging private sector investors to contribute to generating electricity using renewable energies due to being environmentally friendly. He underscored the station’s role in providing large quantities of traditional fossil fuels especially as its annual electricity production reaches 1.8 million watt hours and provides more than 450 tons of fuel.

Al-Hassan called on businessmen to expand the establishment of investment projects in the field of renewable energy, especially in light of the current circumstances due to the unjust economic blockade on the Syrian people. These projects contribute to achieving self-sufficiency in electric energy and reducing dependence on the public

electrical network. He stressed that the station project will contribute to increasing electricity production and reducing energy losses, given that the station is located at points close to consumption; “the industrial zone and the city of Hama”.
