Azraq, 20 September 2018 – The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, inaugurated a new extension of the solar plant in Jordan’s Azraq Syrian Refugee Camp. Funded by the IKEA Foundation, the first phase of a 2 megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) farm was inaugurated in May 2017 and brought renewable power to a population that lived for two and a half years without electricity. Thanks to the newly constructed solar plant and electricity grid extension, the whole camp population will now benefit from regular access to clean energy.
