HOW WE WORK

Feasibility
& Site Study

As a first step, a member of the Haala Energy team will conduct a site visit to understand more about your energy consumption, energy costs, connection points, and the availability of unobstructed and unshaded space on your site.

PROPOSAL
& CONTRACT

The Haala Energy team will then submit a turnkey proposal with a preliminary design and a quote for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the project, as well as some high level financial metrics that will give you an idea about the investment case. The Haala Energy team will then work closely with your team to work out the details, including the final size of the project, payment terms, timeline, and what operation and maintenance (O&M) will be provided after the installation.

ENGINEERING DESIGN
& Procurement

Once the contract is signed, the Haala Energy team will begin the process of designing the project in detail, including the electrical and understructure elements of the system. We’ll then enter procurement, selecting components that are tailored to your project requirements.

CONSTRUCTION
& COMMISSIONING

At this stage, the Haala Energy team will manage the installation in partnership with our electromechanical and civil subcontractors. We make sure that every installation is managed by one of our lead technicians, ensuring the system performs at its full potential for as long as possible.

Monitoring,
Operation, & Maintenance

Finally we will hand over the system after commissioning, and provide the agreed operation and maintenance services. We are also happy to train your team on cleaning routines and other preventative maintenance. You can then monitor your system remotely by accessing our online systems, or receive regular reports with energy generation and savings figures.

OUR STORY

With domestic energy prices set to rise and the price of solar decreasing rapidly, in 2016, we saw an opportunity to build a company to play a role in Saudi Arabia’s energy transition. Haala began consulting for clients looking to develop solar in 2016 and in 2018 we began to execute our first commercial scale projects.
Specifically, we think rooftop solar is an easy and affordable way to do this in the short term, while also empowering individuals and business owners by allowing them to take control of their energy assets and make smart choices about their consumption.








Fundamentally, the Haala Energy team is passionate about the environment, and we believe that shifting our energy mix towards solar and other renewables gives us the best chance of moving to a low carbon future, and mitigating the worst symptoms of climate change.

And in case you were wondering,
HAALA
comes from the Arabic term for the
solar corona.

WHAT MAKES
US DIFFERENT?

We specialise in solar PV. Our philosophy is to focus on one thing only, and do it well. We combine deep local market understanding with a rigorous and analytical approach to project development and a business model that promotes employee ownership. We consider ourselves to be technology agnostic, building custom-designed systems for our clients using the most appropriate components for their needs.

EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

Haala Energy believes in employee ownership. Every member of the team that passes the 1 year mark begins to accumulate equity in the company. Team members that feel engaged and valued give back more to the company. We also think this allows us to better recruit and retain top talent.

THE TEAM

Building a committed and valued team is important to us.
