The document recalls that energy efficiency measures were implemented in 500 mosques for a total cost of 6 million dirhams in the cities of Tangier, Marrakech, Oujda, Casablanca, Fez, Meknes, Sale and Agadir.

The next step consists in equipping 2400 mosques for a total cost of 30 million dirhams across Morocco, investing in Morocco.

The plan also provides for installing photovoltaic solar panels in rural areas to provide schools and rural hospitals with energy.

Morocco is a leading country in the use of solar power hosting the largest concentrated solar power plant in its south-west.

The whole complex provides 580 megawatts saving the planet from over 760,000 tons of carbon emissions.
