Syria’s state electric company announced the completion of another solar project yesterday. 

A 1-megawatt solar power station in the town of Autan has been connected to the electrical grid. The station features 10 inverters, which convert energy to electricity, and 1,818 solar panels, the state-run news outlet SANA reported today.
