There is a major project underway to build a natural gas line from Israel's Leviathan field directly to Gaza, which would provide much cheaper electricity for the enclave. The EU and Qatar are contributing to this initiative to help Gazans get access to more electricity, less expensively than today.

Gazans get about 14 hours a day of electricity today. This is about 203 megawatts of electricity for Gaza's two million residents, which comes out to about 99 watts available per Gazan on the average.

Given how much media attention is given to Gaza's electricity woes, one might think that Gaza is in the very bottom of any list showing how much electricity is available per person worldwide.

That is not true - at all.

Wikipedia has a list of how much power is available per capita for every country. It gets Gaza wrong, claiming .01 watts per person, which is completely false.

But assuming it is accurate for other countries, we see that there is more electricity per person in Gaza than in many other countries, including some that might surprise you like the Philippines or Morocco.

 Over 1.7 billion have less electricity than Gazans have!

I'm not saying that Gazan shouldn't have 24 hours of reliable, cheap electricity a day. Everyone should. But as usual, the media presents Gaza as being one of the worst places on Earth, and there are a lot of people who would love to live in Gaza.
