ACWA Power further noted that in line with the new growth projections, the company estimates its average annual equity commitment amount between 2024 and 2030 to significantly increase to $2-$2.5 billion per year from the earlier range of $1-$1.3 billion per year. This capital increase will allow ACWA Power to continue to invest in the growth of its portfolio while maintaining a strong financial position.
