2017 Annual Report
2017 has been the biggest year of operations for Comet-ME since its foundation. Through two major installation drives, carried out in parallel in two different geographical regions, we have brought reliable access to electricity to 235 families and clean-water services to 71 households throughout Area C of the occupied Palestinian territories. With our maintenance and monitoring programs, reaching 55 communities and nearly 5,000 beneficiaries to date, we have ensured the longevity of our systems and the sustainability of the services we provide. In our research and development program, we have developed a new custom-designed data-logging system for our micro-grid installations and continued developing our stand-alone solar pump targeting smallholder farmers in the Global South.
