MASE CSR initiative launches with the funding and implementation of a 5 kW rooftop solar PV system for a public school 

Amman, Jordan – July 2017: MASE is pleased to announce the launch of the MASE Advancing Solar CSR Initiative with the funding and implementation of a solar PV rooftop installation with a total capacity of 5 kW installed at the Gaza Secondary School for Girls in the city of Jerash, Jordan .  The solar installation, which was jointly funded by MASE and the IEEE’s Engineering Projects in Community Service Program (EPICS) will generate enough clean energy to offset a monthly average of 750 kWh to meet the school’s electricity requirements.

The solar facility is powered by polycrystalline solar PV modules and connected to the grid through high-efficiency micro-inverters.  The equipment is supported by a specialized aluminum support structure.  MASE’s Operations & Maintenance team will be managing the solar installation to ensure peak performance.

The MASE Advancing Solar Initiative is a corporate social responsibility program aimed at advancing MASE’s corporate vision and sustainability values across communities in Jordan and abroad.  The Initiative aims to fund, support, develop and implement solar energy facilities within key impoverished communities, social gatherings and education establishments.  The Initiative also aims to spread awareness of solar energy and to provide opportunities for basic solar installation skill development, vocational training and technical coaching.

The MASE Advancing Solar Initiative is funded by the company’s own resources and executed by its team.
