About SEC
The government has taken concrete steps towards restructuring and privatizing the power sector in order to make it more efficient and economically viable. Saudi Arabia?s ten regional power companies have been consolidated into a single joint-stock company, the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC), in order to expedite the streamlining of the sector?s operations. Capitalized at SR33.75 billion (approximately $9 billion), the new power company is to be self-supported, independent from the government, and in charge of bringing about the necessary capacity increase planned for the year 2020. A strategy to unbundle the power sector into transmission, generation, and distribution is also under review by the Saudi government. This tremendous potential for growth makes the Kingdom one of the world?s most attractive markets for power generation, as well as for power transmission and distribution equipment.
