Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. has supplied solar panels for 19 remote schools in Lebanon working with local partner and Lebanese integrator Asaco General Trade & Contracting.
Sponsored and facilitated by the Country Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Demonstration Project for the Recovery of Lebanon (CEDRO), established through the United Nations Development Program, the combined systems represent the largest solar initiative in Lebanon, according to Suntech.
Because of the locations of the schools in rural villages spread across the Bekaa Valley and Northern Lebanon, grid power can be intermittent and unreliable. Asaco designed custom systems using Suntech solar modules for each of the 19 schools, with power outputs ranging from 1.2 kW to 1.8 kW.
