Dumat al-Jandal, Saudi Arabia’s first wind farm has been connected to the grid and has began producing carbon-free electricity. Al Jazeera reports that the farm, which consists of 99 wind turbines, each with the capacity to generate electricity for up to 70,000 homes in the kingdom, is part of the kingdom’s Vision 2030, a reform project intended to diversify the economy and move Saudi Arabia away from its dependency on oil. When complete, the farm will be saving 988,000 tonnes of CO₂ per year in support of the country’s climate change mitigation goals.
