Morocco is, as of now, enduring severe environmental change with a devastating drought in 2015 that influenced crops and discouraged the economy. The country has adopted several green policies to help in the conservation of the natural environment and to make farmers more empowered for better agricultural results (Schilling et al. 17). In Morocco, less than 40% of the population is farmers. Due to dramatic climatic changes, the country has experienced a large decrease in rainfall during planting seasons over the last three years. Among the various technologies of solar power, wind power, hydro power, electric vehicles, and carbon storage, solar power is classified as the technology that would be most effective in reducing climate change in Morocco.
Morocco experiences high solar radiation over its plains which means that solar power projects will have a great impact to the economy. Morocco has built up the first phase of its solar project with 160 megawatts (MW) of output energy that is meant to help the population growth of the country. More extensive approaches, such as those in wind power, are being generated to advance and empower atmosphere flexibility advancement. These efforts incorporate the country’s new constitution, which promotes sustainable financial improvement and the security of the country’s lands, legacy, society, and wealth. Furthermore, atmosphere flexibility advancement is upheld by the National Charter for Environment and Sustainable Development (CNEDD, 2010), which is set to be operationalized through the
Solar power will increase the rate of electricity consumption which will impact climatic change as well as the economy in Morocco. The generation of electricity from solar panels is environmentally friendly because there is no environmental pollution nor greenhouse gases produced that are harmful to the ecosystem. As a result, solar power technology will greatly help to reduce negative climatic change effects if used widely. Powering businesses and households with solar power would be successful because there are no harmful emissions during the energy production process.
