Street lamps are currently lit up with solar power, with solar panels installed on top of El Manakh Neighborhood’s Public Office and on several main streets. Energy-saving light bulbs have also been installed to support the transition to solar energy.

Al Manakh is home to 100,000 citizens and is one of Port Said’s oldest neighbourhoods, known for its prominent  fishing industry.
