In a statement, it reports that more than 9,700 solar systems, used by more than 40,000 people, have been installed, with 5,000 tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) being avoided, and a goal to benefit more than 250,000 people in the coming years.
The Iberian firm stresses that this initiative is part of the “Electricity for all” program, which aims to bring economically sustainable electricity to emerging and developing countries, through technical and financial capacity.
It is estimated that today there are more than one billion people who do not have access to electricity services, which has an impact on their quality of life and development opportunities, said the company.
