The new initiative, expected to be rolled out in the first quarter of 2022, will see the installation of solar panels at four branches, including NBB’s Istiqlal and Riffa Souq branches, as well as BisB’s Hamad Town and Arad branches, and is estimated to take six months to complete.

The total capacity of the installed panels measures 373KW, generating a combined 605,700 kWh of energy every year, saving up to 65% of power at some of the branches. This will serve to diminish the overall Group’s carbon footprint by reducing approximately 300 Tonnes of CO2 per year, while also optimising energy consumption and costs.
