Harnessing the Power of the Sun for Water and Agriculture in Gaza

Posted in: ,

In Gaza, young Palestinian women are finding jobs installing solar panels — providing the power to pump and clean much needed water for local farmers.

Due to extended electricity cuts in Gaza, farmers here are often unable to pump water for hours each day, preventing them from irrigating their crops and leading to economic losses. Anera is hiring young people in Gaza to install four solar-powered water pumping systems for agricultural water wells in northern Gaza.
