Hanwha SolarOne partners with China Youth Development Foundation to donate a 30 KWh solar PV system that will provide continuous power support to Xiegou Town Center Primary School in Datong County, Qinghai Province. This is part of Hanwha SolarOne’s signature corporate responsibility program – “Happy Sunshine” in China, which will improve overall conditions of local schools, enable its long-term development, and help teachers and students to understand the value of sustainable development.
Commissioned by the Hanwha Group, Hanwha SolarOne will specially design and install a 30 KWh distributed rooftop PV system tailored for school. In addition, Hanwha SolarOne will provide the school with comprehensive operational and maintenance related training.
Hanwha Group donated and installed another 30 KWh distributed rooftop PV system for the Hope Primary School in Wufeng County, Hubei Province in the previous year, and this year's donation for Xiegou Town Center Primary School signifies the continued expansion and achievements in the company's corporate social responsibility in China. Mr. Seong-Woo Nam, CEO of Hanwha SolarOne, stated during the signing ceremony, "Hanwha Group is dedicated to supporting children's education while fostering a greater understanding of sustainable development and renewable energy.
