RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives
RC Yanbu’s Major Initiatives
 IDEA Polysilicon Company project under design (SR
2.8 billion investment) to produce 10,000 tons/year
polysilicon, 20 million wafers & 19 million solar cells
per year.
 Hydrogen gas network to capture hydrogen from
industrial processes and purify to yield a 19.4%
energy savings for industrial users.
 Upgrade RC-Yanbu Facilities for LEED certification.
 Activate citywide Smart Solar Application Program.
 Provide Green building demonstration for the public .
RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives
RC-Yanbu Energy Support Program
 Educational Campaign – Initiate a major public
relations campaign to inform the public about
the environmental & financial benefits of using
solar energy.
 Offer a Sustainable Design Center – Construct an
exhibit building that will feature state-of-the-art
features to inform the public of solar energy
applications in their homes & businesses.
 Solar Training Programs – Establish classes in
Yanbu Technical Institute to train students for
solar industry manufacturing jobs.
 Create a Solar Energy Cluster – Set aside prime
area in Industrial Park for companies that
produce solar & renewable energy products.
