Solar power generating systems are drawing growing attention as the flag-bearer of clean energy solutions. Thirty-six years ago, Kyocera began research and development of solar power generating systems with a strong awareness of the future of humanity. Today, Kyocera solar power generating systems are being used in many parts of the world.

Solar power generating systems donated to 50 schools in developing countries
In developing countries, the electrification rate is low even today. In many places people have to rely on small, private-use power generators, small hydroelectric power sources and other unstable means of electrical power generation. Electrical facilities in developing countries will need to be established or expanded from the perspective of infrastructure for both society and daily life. Only then will it be possible to enhance economic activity, as well as administrative and public services such as hospitals and schools. The use of solar power holds the possibility to be a means of solving such problems.

In response, Kyocera is donating 15 solar power generating systems to schools in Uganda. From 2009 to 2013, three schools a year will receive a system. Additionally, 35 systems will be donated to schools in Tanzania and Nepal. Using solar power generating systems to bring light into classrooms will encourage local children to study. Improvement of the learning environment can help to bring about greater development of these countries.
