Germany to Invest in Chinese Solar Project

July 19, 2002 [] The German government will reportedly provide €8 million (US$8.07 million) to Lanzhou in the rural Northwest Gansu Province of China to help build a solar energy system. The project is expected to benefit 500,000 farmers in remote areas in the province with a lack of adequate access to power. Gansu Province is sparsely populated with 890 villages in isolated southern areas that have never had electric service. The provincial government will also invest 34.76 million yuan (US$4 million) in the initial phase of the project involving Pingliang, Tianshui, Gannan and Lixian County.
