AMMAN — The Ministry of Water headquarters has started relying on solar-energy generated electricity with a capacity of 240 kilowatts per hour, Minister Hazem Nasser said Sunday.

Nasser said that the alternative energy will save the ministry around 40 per cent of the electricity bill value. The project’s total cost did not exceed JD250,000, the minister said.

He added the ministry will begin implementing a grand solar-energy station project with a capacity of 50 megawatts per hour which is expected to save JD40 million annually from the water sector’s energy bill over the next five years.
