Norway’s ambassador to Morocco Sjur Larsen congratulated “Empower New Energy” for building partnerships with Moroccan industrials such as “Zalar Holding”, saying this project opens up future opportunities and growth in line with Morocco’s Energy Transition plan.
CEO of Zalar Holding Siham Benhamane said Zalar is committed to the environment protection, affirming that this project offers the possibility to achieve a measurable impact in affordable, reliable and clean energy.
CEO of Jet Energy Ismail Tadlaoui said: “In this period of uncertainty, solar photovoltaic is the best solution for energy-users who wish to secure a competitive cost of electricity over the long term while improving their carbon footprint”.
