AMMAN : The University of Jordan and the Jordan Electric Power Company (JEPCO) on Sunday signed an agreement to start operating the solar energy systems in the university.

The solar panels have been distributed on 110 sites inside the campus, at a cost of JD2 million, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
Highlighting the importance of the project, Hassan Abdullah, general manager of JEPCO, said that the project will feed three main stations inside and nearby the university.
