Layla: The first solar project of its kind in Saudi Arabia


Algihaz, in partnership with BGL Energy (formally BElectric Gulf), is proud to have been part of the team delivering the Layla, a 10MW capacity solar photovoltaic plant, located in the province of Al-Aflaj, 200 Km south of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

The solar installation, stretching over 720,000 square meters, is the first of its kind in the Kingdom – a renewable, large-scale energy production station connected directly to the nation’s electric grid. The Layla PV plant is capable of supplying 10% of local demand, saves approximately 4 million barrels of oil, and reduces carbon emissions by 1.7 million tons.
