Cambodian Island Koh Rong Sanloem Converts to Solar Power

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Clip showing the recycling of solar panels in France, from 2018. Hopefully such systems will become more common around the world in the coming years.

No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

As a localized energy source it’s a great idea but one big issue (especially here) is maintenance
Compared with a diesel generator for example?

Well yes, that’s why I said “obviously a diesel genny is noisy and inefficient”.

What’s your question?
Don’t listen to Chinese whispers.
