Somalis harness solar energy to fight diversification

Dozens of families in Mogadishu and Borama are starting to take advantage of solar energy instead of using charcoal, petroleum or natural gas to cook food and heat water.

Muna Abdikadir Muhiyadin, 27, said she brought about 50 solar cookers with her from Stockholm, Sweden, to sell in Mogadishu.

"Using solar energy to heat water or cook food is good for the environment and is great for fighting desertification [caused from] people cutting down trees and burning forests," she told Sabahi.

The solar cookers are made of several mirrored panels set together to look like a satellite dish. These panels focus sunlight at the centre of the appliance enabling it to heat a cooking pot or an oven.

Muhiyadin said some of her friends have also started businesses buying solar cookers from China and transporting them from Mogadishu to be sold in Borama, capital of Awdal region in north-western Somalia. She said they are thinking of bringing this service to other Somali towns and cities, including Hargeisa, Kismayo, Baidoa, Beledweyne and Bosaso.

The solar cookers can produce heat up to 200 degrees Celsius and can be used to prepare all types of foods, including vegetables, meat, chicken, fish, rice and bread, among others, Muhiyadin said.

"Prices vary based on demand and they offer various cooking methods, such as steaming and boiling," she said.

Somalis are starting to embrace the technology for use at home and in businesses.

Anab Daud, a resident of Mogadishu's Hamar Weyne district, said she has not been able to buy solar cooker because demand has outpaced supply.

"I am looking forward to buying one if they are on the market again because they are environmentally friendly and non-hazardous," she told Sabahi, adding that solar cookers are easier and faster to use.

"I saw my friend making food using a solar cooker," she said. "I used to see her kitchen fill with smoke and she would sweat profusely. It was hard for her to control the flame [using charcoal] so she could not control the amount of time it took her to cook the food."

Aweys Rage Siad, 56, who recently returned to Somalia from the United States, said he would like to see businessmen open cafes and restaurants using solar energy instead of polluting fuels.

"Using firewood in urban and rural areas has caused desertification and drought," he told Sabahi. "As a result, wild animals have fled the [once] green Somali forests for Kenya."

The Somali government and local administrations have worked to fight the practice of harvesting charcoal from Somali forests, as it causes the destruction of pasture for animals, increases the prevalence of floods, and makes the land unsuitable for agriculture. In addition, charcoal has been a major industry for al-Shabaab.

Lul Shire Abdi, an energy expert in Mogadishu, said Somali citizens should take advantage of solar energy or other alternative fuels, instead of chopping down trees and burning forests.

She told Sabahi that the energy emitted from the sun can also be harnessed using solar panels to operate pumps, fans, lighting, water heating and air conditioning.

"This is a good test to see if we can be self-sufficient and do without charcoal, oil, gas and other resources if solar energy is finally adopted," she said.

You're never getting it back. I will make sure you never enter that city or any of the clan's lands for matter. Do you understand me? You will be shot between the eyes if I hear such a disgusting request ever again. I dare you to even think about going on expedia.com and booking tickets to Xamar. Those houses are property of the HAG and it's people. You have a better chance of you single handily conquering Europe than getting back your house you most likely got through illegitimate means (BOOLI QARAN).

Focus on Las Anod, Somaliland :clap:

I joke, I joke. You can talk to municipal officials to claim re-ownership of your home if it was obtained legally and halal. I understand Al-Shabab, when controlling Xamar, was giving back people's houses when they came to them with their property papers. HAG officials have made it their priority in reuniting homes with their proper owners who've obtained it in a halal way

You know what's funny..... you will never enter Kismayo.... ever. Your ass belongs in Las Anod. Why do you run away from Las Anod? Why don't you claim it? It's a nice, picturesque town. I have some pictures of the city somewhere in my house... maybe I will upload it for you. Maybe you'll recognize my ayeyo and the townspeople in the pictures. It is a small town after all :clap:

All these niggas claiming to be from xamar and supposedly having a house there :arrow: if you were a real Mogadishuian you would know how to get your property back by now. Nearly everyone got their property back.

Secondly shut the hell up with this Jubbaland BS your ass is from Las Anod where the isaqs occupy and rule you guys by force. Forever talking about Kismayo when you need to free yourself down north first. How can you talk about Hawiyes when you can't even free yourself from isaqs out of all people? Lord give you a brain :blessed:
