Jordanian MASE wins Middle East Solar Industry Association Award for Rooftop Solar Project

MASE Energy MESIA Solar Awards Winner 2015 Press Release

Multi-household community rooftop project recognised for social impact and technical prowess

Amman, Jordan – 13 December 2015: MASE, a Jordan-based regional clean energy developer, installer and O&M provider, has won the Middle East Solar Industry Association’s (MESIA) award for 2015 “Rooftop Solar Project” for a multi-household multi-location project comprising rooftop solar PV installations on 400 low-income households across Jordan with a total capacity of 600kWp. The “Rooftop Solar Project” category was awarded Thursday 10 December 2015 at the MESIA Solar Awards 2015 in Dubai, UAE. The annual event is organized by MESIA to recognize and celebrate exceptional talent and achievements in the MENA solar market.

The Rooftop Solar Project, which is being implemented in its totality by MASE under a turnkey EPC and O&M contract with Jordan’s Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources’ Jordan Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF) and Mercy Corps and represents the implementation of an innovative private public partnership model to introduce clean energy solutions on a mass scale, delivering immediate impact.

Crowning MASE’s community-based solar projects portfolio, the Rooftop Solar Project represents a milestone achievement for all stakeholders and serves as a scalable model for governments, communities and businesses everywhere. The Rooftop Solar Project immediately and directly impacts over 400 low-income families across Jordan by providing them with a clean, sustainable and free source of energy. The upfront cost of the solar PV systems has been partially subsidized by a grant from JREEEF and Mercy Corps, with the balance repaid by the beneficiaries through a soft loan. The Rooftop Solar Project will serve as a scalable prototype to Jordanian policy makers in their efforts to minimize the impact of energy subsidies on Jordan’s annual budget via clean energy initiatives. It will also serve as a unique model to solar service providers and contractors of engineering and construction standardization for bulk, logistically challenging rooftop solar applications.

“This milestone project is a living example of the comprehensive impact that clean energy can have on families, communities, and economies. This was a life-changing experience for all of us at MASE and the joy of knowing that each hour spent on this project will directly impact the livelihood of families across Jordan is incalculable” said Tareq Khalifeh, Director of Operations at MASE.
