China funds a solar energy project in Bka3touta, Kesrwan


In cooperation with the China Institute for International and Strategic Studies (CIISS), the Roads Association, an affiliate of the General Foundation NGO, launched last Friday a solar energy system project benefiting 260 houses in the Kesrwan village of Bka3touta. On the occasion, General Chamel Rukuz thanked the Chinese institute for the generous donation, underlining the importance of generating energy in these difficult times. Mark Moretti, Vice Chairperson of Cogedis which implemented the project, said it took nearly 7 months to equip each of the town’s houses with three solar panels and two storage batteries generating 15 amps, equivalent to 4 hours of electricity per day. ” Because of the project, Moretti explained, the residents of Bka3touta will be able to benefit from about 415,000 kilowatts and save about USD 78,000 every year, that is around USD 300 per household. Chinese built solar systems, Al Diyar wrote, are among the most cutting-edge in the world, as China is leading amongst renewable energy producing countries. It reportedly manufactures 72% of the world’s solar panels. (Al Diyar, September 28, 2020)
