Congressman Eliot Engel visited the Jaha Solar Company on November 20th, as part of a five-day visit to Kosovo.  Jaha is one of Kosovo's most successful and innovative companies, and currently the only producer of solar panels in Kosovo and the Western Balkans.  Congressman Engel had the chance to meet with Jaha owner Fadil Jaha, who went on to represent Kosovo one week later at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India. USAID has collaborated on several activities with Jaha Solar through the EMPOWER Private Sector activity, the latest of which is a pilot project to subsidize 25 households and businesses to install rooftop solar generators for self-consumption. This program, still ongoing, promotes the household-level use of alternative energy sources by showcasing the benefits of solar panels, including the ability for homes and businesses to function independently and without electrical outages.
