Yellow Door Energy is the solar developer for Carrefour Jordan / Majid Al Futtaim’s solar park.

Located in Wadi Al Aash, Jordan, the solar park has a capacity of 17 MWp and will provide clean power to 37 Carrefour stores across Jordan; in line with Majid Al Futtaim’s Net Positive sustainability strategy.

With more than 49,000 solar panels covering an area as large as 50 football fields, the solar park will generate 29 million kilowatt-hours of clean energy in the first year of operation - equivalent to reducing carbon emissions across Carrefour’s operations by 20,000 tonnes.

As the build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) solar provider, Yellow Door Energy invested in, designed, built, commissioned and will operate and maintain the solar park.

In addition to generating clean energy for Jordan, the solar park also creates jobs and brings development to Wadi Al Aash. Over 200 Jordanian engineers and workers were employed to build the solar park, while hundreds of local landowners benefited from a new 7-kilometer road, as well as connection to Greater Amman Municipality’s utility services.
