Photovoltaic plants are already an integral part of energy production in many industrialized countries. This technology is only slowly establishing itself in the developing regions of the world. One of the first steps to provide electricity from renewable energy resources has been initiated by BIOHAUS-Stiftung from Willi Ernest with the project "Solar beats Diesel."
The PV system is one of the largest private PV systems in Lebanon. It includes 1,704 panels covering a surface of 4,000 m2, which will be able to deliver 450 kW for a yearly produce of 621 MWh of power.
