Solar for Commercial & Industrial
The Lebanese public grid suffers from a chronic deficit between its production capacities (1200 MW) and the power demand (2000MW) resulting in long hours of daily blackouts. During these blackouts the consumer usually uses diesel generators (DG) as a costly alternative power supply source. The majority of the Lebanese territory is 50% supplied by Electricité du Liban (EDL) with an average cost of $0.24/kWh. Moreover, oil prices are steadily increasing and the EDL kWh price is expected to increase as well, which will directly increase the current energy bill. Photovoltaic (PV) systems produce electricity as low as $0.06-0.08/kWh on average. No other technology has accomplished such cost reductions in the market as PV systems in sunny countries like Lebanon.
