Jordan switches on world’s largest solar plant in a refugee camp

A general view shows part of a new 15 million euro solar plant, funded by the German government, that emits some 12.9 megawatts during its official inauguration at the Zaatari refugee camp on November 13, 2017. Some 80,000 Syrian refugees living in the Zaatari camp will have access to 14 hours of electricity per day instead of eight hours, thanks to the opening of the new solar power station.
