In addition to designing and installing the 30 kW distributed rooftop PV system for Yuyangguan Town Hope Primary School, Hanwha SolarOne will provide comprehensive operation and maintenance training to ensure its optimal use. The system will yield an estimated 32,000 kW of clean solar energy every year.

More than that, we are honored to brighten the lives of these children and bring them new hope through new energy,” said Mr. Keum Choon-Soo, President of Hanwha Group China Headquarters during the ceremony. “As a responsible corporate citizen, Hanwha will continue to bring benefit to the communities we serve and partner with organizations who share our commitment to creating a brighter future.”

Mr. Yang Chun Lei, Vice General Secretary of the China Youth Development Foundation added, “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation from Hanwha Group and Hanwha SolarOne. With Hanwha SolarOne’s advanced technology and beneficial training, we believe that this system will be an effective source of sustainable and reliable energy for Yuyangguan Town Hope Primary School.”
