On December 20th, 2012, SolarWorld AG (Bonn, Germany) announced that it plans to implement more than 80 solar photovoltaic (PV) aid projects in five years as part of its Solar2World initiative.

The solar projects will be developed in many countries of Africa and South America.

SolarWorld states that it supplied off-grid solar power systems with an overall capacity of around 450 kilowatts (kW) to aid projects in emerging and developing countries.

Together with associations, church groups and development organizations, the company provided solar panels and complete PV systems for hospitals, wells and water treatment plants, schools, street-lighting, training centers as well as nature reserves, the company adds.

SolarWorld has supplied Haiti, which is prone to earthquakes and underdevelopment, with solar power systems with a total capacity of 100 kW for hospitals and drinking water supply.
