The Renewable Energy Authority of Libya (REAOL) managed on Wednesday, June 16, to successfully put in use the first power system on solar energy in one of the healthcare facilities in Libya, knowing that the solar system (2.5 kilowatts) is completely isolated from the general electricity network.

The REAOL said that the solar system, installed in Al-Hamidiya Healthcare Center, one of the Health Ministry’s centers in Tajoura-Tripoli, is expected to generate the needed electricity round the clock to keep the cooler-devices in the center supplied with power, which will in return keep medicines, serums, and vaccines safe and away from being damaged due to recurrent blackouts.

The REAOL indicated that it would do what it takes to install a number of solar power systems in all healthcare centers and vital institutions around Libya.
