TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon partners USJ to solarize two campuses

Total Energies and USJ Solar Project

TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon and Saint Joseph University of Beirut (USJ) signed an agreement that aims at transforming two of the university campuses into solar-powered hubs.

This joint project, supported by Farjallah Group, as an approved contractor for TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon selected for this project, is expected to be completed by the third quarter of the year.

Upon completion, the robust solar system will generate more than 1.1 MWp, with 756 kWp dedicated to the Mar Roukoz Science and Technology Campus and 352 kWp to the Huvelin Social Sciences Campus. This project will contribute to 550 tons of CO2 reduction per year and is equivalent to powering 250 single-family Lebanese houses per year.

Prof. Salim Daccache S.J., USJ Rector

In his speech, Prof. Salim Daccache S.J., USJ Rector, welcomed this partnership: “It is a pleasure to renew our collaboration with TotalEnergies with a very beneficial project for campuses and institutions that are barely able to pay electricity bills and buy fuel for their generators. This partnership, coupled with collaboration at the level of the Master Oil & Gas of the School of Engineering of Beirut (ESIB), is a sign of hope for our young people and a message that the vital forces of the country are building the future.”

Adrien Béchonnet, Managing Director & Country Chair, TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon

Adrien Béchonnet, Managing Director & Country Chair, TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon, confirmed: “Today’s announcement is a first-of-its-kind in Lebanon. We are delighted to deliver such revolutionary solar solutions at USJ to contribute to CO2 emission reduction on campus and within the community at large. As a responsible multi-energy company, we remain committed to supporting the sustainable development of the country as it incorporates renewable sources in its energy mix.”

As part of its green approach, USJ has already equipped nine of its buildings with solar panels; according to the Director of Real Estate Maintenance and Conservation, Mr. Wassim Selwan: “This latest solar energy project, the biggest installation at USJ campuses in collaboration with TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon, which can only be beneficial for all partners and our society, is a translation of the actions, the culture and the spirit of sustainable development that USJ has been adopting for several years.”
