Seeing no end to power crisis, Gazans turn to the sun

 Reuters 14 March 2019

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. As solar panels prices decrease, schools, hospitals, shops, banks and even mosques across the Gaza Strip have started to install them on their roofs. Not only are solar panels more reliable and cheaper in the long run, but in some cases, they have become essential to staying alive, reports Reuters. (545 Words) - By Nidal Al-Mughrabi
