Currently, 400 mosques in Jordan generate their needs of electricity via solar energy projects, according to Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Hayel Daoud.

Out of the 6,300 mosques in Jordan, only 2,000 need renewable energy projects as their power bills are too high, he added.

“The remaining mosques do not need such project at this stage as their monthly bills do not exceed JD15 ($21) to JD20 per month,” he added.

The Ministry has signed a JD4 million agreement with the Jordan Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF) to support renewable energy projects for mosques, the report said.

Under the agreement, funding provided to mosques under the project will be increased from 20 per cent to 50 per cent, adding that solar panels with total generating capacity of 4 megawatts will be installed.
