    Abstract

    Deployment of renewable energy has become a global concern and a necessity. Dependence on fossil fuels cannot be sustained; it is a finite resource that produces carbon emissions and contributes to climate change. Therefore, countries all over the world are investing in large utility scale renewable technologies. Even countries rich with oil, such as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, are investing heavily in the renewable energy sector. This paper presents an optimizing model that aims to minimize the costs of investing in a nation-wide utility scale solar plant.
