Al Badiya is a specialized power generation company, solely owned by Philadelphia Solar. The project was established on the 25th of November, 2013, with an area of 450,000 m2 and a startup capital of 22.5 million USD.
Al Badiya currently owns a 12 MWp power plant located in Al-Mafraq, Jordan, which has been operating since 22 October, 2015. The plant consists of 48,000 polycrystalline panels (250 Wp each) and Magnelis steel mounting structures (Model: PS-4H-Fixed) which were all made locally by Philadelphia Solar. In February 2019, Al Badiya operated an expansion of another 11 MWp whereby the total operating capacity of the power plant became 23 MWp. This expansion consists of approximately 34,350 polycrystalline panels (320 Wp each),
Philadelphia Solar made a state-of-the-art single axis tracking system (Model: PS-1P-Tracker), and a 12 MWh Lithium Ion energy storage system.
Tesla was selected to provide a 3MW/12.6MWh powerpack system paired with the 23MWp solar park in AlMafraq (12 MWp 1st phase + 11 MWp 2nd Phase).
The powerpack performs multiple functions including renewable firming, ramp rate control, avoiding curtailment and proven network frequency support.
The powerpack system further supports transforming Jordan’s movement towards renewable energy and sees an advancement of a resilient, modern and economically-efficient grid.
