RWE Schott Brings Power to 26 Chinese Villages

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] RWE Schott Solar secured a bid from China-based CMC International Tendering Corporation for the electrification of approximately 26 villages in China’s Gansu province. The project is being realized as part of the Chinese government’s Brightness Program, which is bringing electricity to extremely remote and currently unelectrified villages through the establishment of independent village “minigrids.” These local grids will be powered by local hybrid diesel/solar power plants, 90 percent of whose energy output will be solar-based. The approximately one million euro cost of the project includes expenditures for locally manufactured components such as batteries, diesel motors and system installation, as well as the cost of training local operators.
