The Gaza Strip is a narrow strip stretches
along the east-south corner of the Mediterranean Sea , 40
km long and between 6 and 12 km wide. It lies on Longitude 34o
26` east and Latitude 31o 10` north of the equator. The total area is
estimated at 365 km2 . The Gaza Strip is highly populated with an estimated population of
850,000 and can be divided into major cities, refugee camps and villages. The
average population density is 2330 person / km2
, while the highest, which is registered in the camps can be 100,000 person / km2.
The Gaza Strip is categorized as tropical region with a relatively hot
summer and mild winter.
The average daily mean temperature ranges from 24oC
in summer [May-August], to 15oC in
winter [November-February] Fig.(1). Average daily maximum temperatures range
from 27oC to 19oC and minimum
temperatures from 21oC to 11oC,
in the summer and winter respectively.

The daily relative humidity Fig. (2) fluctuates between 62.5% in the
daytime and 83.4% at night in the summer, and between 51.6% and 81.3%,
respectively, in winter.

Strip has a relatively high solar radiation. It has approximately 2861, annual
sunshine -hour sunshine throughout the year. The daily average solar radiation
on a horizontal surface is about 222 W/m2 (7014 MJ/m2/yr).
This varies during the day and through out the year Fig (3). Illustrates the
variation in the monthly daily average in total insolation on horizontal surface
for each month.

The average electric lead in a
clinic amounts to approximately 2.4 Kw/day, and is utilized for lighting,
medicinal refrigeration and the operation of medical testing equipment. Since a
large number of clinics located in remote villages have no electricity at all,
such electricity loads can be easily and reliably covered by a small PV
generator with a peak power of only 400 W and a storage battery black capacity
of 7.2 Kwh .
This alternative was applied to
nine clinics in remote villages in Palestine, and proved to be a viable solution
in such cases.
It is expected that about 30 PV
generators, corresponding to a peak of about 15KW
