The Connected Solar School unit implemented in the Za’atari refugee camp provides the much needed energy and the E-HUBB is powering the connectivity equipment from SES to bring connectivity to approx. 1000 school children and school administration.
The 2 kWp Connected Solar School is operated by Relief International and hosted by UNICEF. The energy from the Connected Solar School is currently being used to power:
- Inside and outside lights
- Lights within the nearby school structure
- A laptop and projector used for educational activities in the nearby school structure
- Tablets used for educational activities
- Satellite system and router for Wi-Fi
- Scanner, printer and photocopier for the teachers to prepare the classes

With the installation of the connected solar school, portable lights are charged all day in the kiosk’s charging stations and then hung up in classrooms — extending the school day into the afternoon and giving children more time to learn. Teachers use the kiosk as an office, which uses solar power to run fans, a printer, charging stations and even a refrigerator. The solar kiosk has a direct satellite, bringing connectivity to the center and to Za’atari for the first time.” “The solar kiosk allows students to spend more time learning each day, and to use learning tools only available online, it also provides an opportunity to teach students about issues such as renewable energy and sustainability.
