    ‘This solar panel saved my life’

    John Fitzgerald Weaver, December 26, 2017 (electrek)

    “…In southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean we’re seeing solar power – right now – offering huge services to people in trying times…In Myanmar, fleeing Rohingya are carrying one key asset: solar panels…[Myanmar’s military patrols kill the Rohinga they come across. The Rohinga carry $15, 20-watt solar panel kit to charge the mobile phone through which they get information about how to avoid the patrols. Refugee] camps managed by the United Nations have installed larger sized solar installations to take care of longer term populations…Jordan recently completed installation of the largest solar plant at a refugee camp – a 12.9MW plant at the Zaatari refugee camp.. The project, on the border of Syria and Jordan, was funded by the German government and saves the United Nation Refugee Agency $5.5 million a year. The camp of 80,000 Syrians will get electricity from the solar panels for up to 14 hours a day...A camp in Dadaab, Kenya has installed 278 solar panels that are being used to pump 280,000 liters of water per day…” click here for more
