Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan Receives Huge 40,000 Panel Solar Plant


Building solar farms in the desert may have become a common practice, but one new solar plant unveiled on Monday in northern Jordan is anything but ordinary. This 12.9 megawatt plant made up of 40,000 solar panels will provide power to people living in the Zaatari refugee camp, victims of war whose lives were turned upside when the violence reached their doorstep. The solar power plant became the largest ever located inside a refugee camp
