Large organic farm in Saudi Arabia switches to solar-powered irrigation

Large organic farm in Saudi Arabia switches to solar-powered irrigation

“We are proud to partner with First Solar on this exciting new project, which will not only help reduce our carbon footprint, but will also allow us to explore the potential for solar to reliably support our energy needs,” said Eng. Ibrahim Aboabat, Al-Watania Agriculture CEO. “Al Watania Organic was born from our founder, Sheikh Sulaiman Abdulaziz Al Rajhi’s vision of agricultural products being sustainably farmed right here in Saudi Arabia. Implementing the use of solar electricity will help further that vision and will allow us to move towards our goal of becoming the region’s first truly sustainable large-scale agricultural operation.”
