MASE Completes EMRC Licensing with Class A Grading


MASE receives Class A ESP licensing from the EMRC 

Amman, Jordan – 02 March 2017: MASE is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its Energy Service Provider (ESP) licensing application, receiving the highest-category Class A license issued by Jordan’s Energy & Mineral’s Regulatory Commission (EMRC). The Class A category is the highest of the three-tiered EMRC licensing program and is awarded following a comprehensive evaluation of references, modus-operandi, company structure, financial capability and team qualifications.

As a Class A licensed firm, MASE is accredited to design, implement, commission and operate solar PV projects with no limitation on the installed capacity, whereas lower-grade licenses (Class B and Class C) place a cap on the project size (1 MWp and 100 kWp respectively).


About the License

EMRC’s ESP licensing program launched in 2016 as an effort to regulate Jordan’s quickly-expanding solar energy sector by accrediting and categorizing downstream service providers (solar engineers, designers, installers and operators). The licensing program requires firms to submit comprehensive applications, covering their technical, financial and human resource capabilities as well as project reference documentation. The EMRC ESP licensing program places firms into one of three categories – Class A, B and C – as a result of its evaluation of the firm’s capabilities. Firms granted Class A licensing are able to implement solar projects with no cap on the project size, while Class B and Class C licencees are only authorized to be involved in projects with sizes capped at 1 MWp and 100 kWp respectively.
