SULAIMANI — As part of an effort to take advantage of the Kurdistan Region’s potential for harnessing the power of the sun, Sulaimani Electricity Directorate said on Sunday (January 17) that a private company will build a 200-kilowatt solar power station in the governorate.

The directorate said in a statement that Ala Company will use the new station to meet between ten and fifteen percent of the needs of the Sulaimani Water Factory in Bazian sub-district.

Citing the Region’s suitability for solar power, given the large number of sunny days during the year, the directorate added that the new station would have the added benefit of providing clean, non-polluting energy.
