The EU has completed the construction of the biggest photovoltaic energy field in Gaza, Palestine, which will fuel the Southern Gaza Desalination Plant.

The Southern Gaza Desalination Plant was funded by the EU and currently provides safe, clean drinking water for 75,000 inhabitants of Gaza.

Now powered by the new photovoltaic energy field, and the external investments it is expected to generate, the plant could provide water for more than 250,000 people in Gaza by 2020.
