The photovoltaic cell market support project is funded by a grant from the UNDP to the Ministry of Environment with the overall aim to establish small and decentralized units of renewable energy in Lebanon. The program offers 10-year interest free loans to buy small scale solar systems that are available in the local market.

This program follows the solar water heater market support project which was a big success in Lebanon.
