The US embassy in Lebanon announced the launch of 35 energy projects that will provide power to 17 Lebanese villages.

“Hand in hand, let’s re-light 17 Lebanese villages through INARA in addition to 35 green energy projects that will reduce the dependence on fossil fuel and lessen environmental pollution damage.”

On August 5th, Rechmaya Hydropower Plant and Penstock was announced as the first station to be rehabilitated by INARA.
