Hodeida Governorate, facing severe electricity shortages amid extreme heat, has initiated a series of measures to provide relief to its residents. These efforts are part of the government’s program aimed at addressing the pressing electricity needs of the region.
Among the initiatives is the provision of free electricity to thousands of impoverished households in districts such as Al-Mina, Al-Hawk, and Al-Hali.
Additionally, the local authorities have set up solar-powered electrical systems in more than 66 schools to create a suitable environment for students. Reducing electricity tariffs and implementing solar energy systems in service institutions are also part of the comprehensive strategy to alleviate the challenges faced by the people of Hodeida.
In a groundbreaking move, the governorate has launched a renewable energy project with a capacity of 20 megawatts. These efforts align with the government’s priorities to improve living conditions and alleviate the suffering of Hodeida’s residents in the face of extreme temperatures.
