The EBRD is considering providing a senior secured loan of up to USD 68 million to Green Watts Renewable Energy LLC to finance the construction of an 82 MW wind farm (the Project) in Jordan near the village of Al Rajef in the Ma'an Governorate, approximately 200 km south of Amman. The project will sell all its power under a long-term power purchase agreement to the Jordanian National Electricity Power Company.
The Project will support Jordan in increasing its electricity generation capacity from clean, renewable sources and reducing reliance on hydrocarbon imports.
