BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- Argentina on Tuesday approved a series of bids to install solar energy equipment in 19 provinces, as part of a renewable energy push financed by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD).

The Energy Secretariat, under the Ministry of Economy, approved the public bids to supply and install the solar energy equipment at schools, homes and other buildings at an estimated cost of 21.7 million U.S. dollars.
