Up in the picturesque mountains of Shahrinav, where nature’s conditions are so harsh they make it uninhabitable for people, there is a solar-powered fish farm. The owner Qutbidin Rajabov has had his share of doubts about the benefits, when his farm, serving also as a touristic base, was selected as a pilot project to switch to solar power. Yet, it cost him nothing to try, while there was at least one clear win: Solar energy would spare him at least some of his ten-hour roundtrips to transport diesel to the mountains. The benefits he has received have by far exceeded his expectations and helped him increase the survival rate of the fish.
