Additionally, it has been stated by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund that the Super Esco has the capitalization of US$ 510,000 – project under the Super Esco will help reduce spending in the electricity sector and support expansion projects for future production, generation, T&D of electricity as the population of the Kingdom continues to grow.
