    PALESTINIANS BUILDING SOLAR

    Gazans Turn to Solar Energy Amid Frequent Power Blackouts; Solar power, abundant year-round, may provide the coastal enclave with a degree of energy independence.

    Nidal al-Mugrhabi, March 9, 2016 (Reuters via Haaretz)

    “Faced with power blackouts lasting anything from eight to 12 hours a day, residents and businesses in Gaza are increasingly turning to the sun to supply their energy needs....Whereas three or four years ago only a handful of Gaza's 1.95 million people could afford to think about solar panels, in the past couple of years, as prices have come down, it has become a much more accessible option…Schools, hospitals, shops, banks and even mosques have started to install panels on their roofs across the Gaza Strip…Looking across the rooftops of downtown Gaza City, it is clear solar is catching on, with glinting panels on almost every building. New technology even allows people to hang panels over the edge of their balconies…Most of the equipment, including batteries and controllers, is imported from China…via Israel, which allows them into Gaza via one of its crossings…Costs for a system range from $1,500 to $30,000…Solar power — abundant year-round in Gaza, perched as it is on the edge of the southeastern Mediterranean between Israel and Egypt — may provide the territory with a degree of energy independence…” click here for more
