24/7 electricity in a South Lebanon village thanks to solar panels

Finally innovating!

The power shortage problem in Lebanon is not new. People in Lebanon pay their utility bills and get barely anything in return. The European Union (EU) in Lebanon proved that the best way to solve this problem is to rely on safe and sustainable methods.

The EU funded a 250kWh solar farm in Qabrikha, a village in South Lebanon. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) executed the project. The residents are enjoying 24/7 electricity and paying less. The electricity expenses dropped by 30%! This project, which is the first of its kind in Lebanon, supplied 120 smart meters to subscribers. The mayor of the village hopes that all 550 houses in Qabrikha will subscribe to the system.

Using solar energy to generate electricity is the best solution to the power shortage crisis in Lebanon. It reduces electricity bills and helps to slow/stop global warming. It's an eco-friendly and a pocket-friendly solution!
