BEIRUT : The Lebanese government issued licences to eleven companies to begin producing 15 megawatts (MW) of solar power each, energy minister Walid Fayyad said on Thursday during a press conference.

The companies will have a year to secure funding, the minister added, saying it would be a “good sign” to the international community, which has been asking Lebanon to reform its energy sector. (Reporting by Timour Azhari Writing by Lina Najem Editing by Maya Gebeily and Mark Potter)
