The residents of Arab Salim in southern Lebanon have approved a plan to bring solar water heaters into every home, beginning with a pilot project of 100 homes.
Both the municipal government and the company installing the solar water heaters have agreed to each pay US$100 of the installation expenses.
The cost per household will then be approximately US$400. The equipment should pay for itself in under two years with the average annual savings estimated at US$260 per household.
Congratulations, Arab Salim residents and government, on taking this eco-friendly and cost-saving step. May every city and town adopt Earth-loving ways for a bright planetary future.
