Syrian president inaugurates photovoltaic energy project

Damascus, Sept 29 (Prensa Latina) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday launched the first phase of a photovoltaic energy project in the industrial city of Adra, some 18 km northeast of this capital.

According to an information note issued by the press office of the Syrian presidency, this project covers an area of over 165 hectares and in its final phase it will generate 100 megawatts of electricity through solar panels.

It indicated that so far 18,000 solar panels have been installed and the generated energy is connected to the national power grid.

Work on this project started after the president´s visit to this industrial zone in June, 2021.

Syrian authorities are planning to generate up to 2000 megawatts of electricity from solar energy before 2030, and to achieve this, the fund to support renewable energies was created to give loans without interests to enterprises or individuals who wish to establish this kind of project.

Of the 9,000 megawatts before the war, Syria is currently generating some 2,300 due to the lack of fuel and spare parts, much needed for the maintenance of power plants, as a result of the embargo and sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union.
