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.
