    How Solar Is Saving Refugee’s Lives

    ‘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
