Solar Rural Telephony in Tibet
: There will be "satellite-connected public payphones in more than 1,300 Tibetan villages by the end of 2003. Kyocera is working with Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. to provide the systems to China Telecom Tibet. Approximately 3,500 Kyocera KC-80 photovoltaic modules will be used to power the systems, which will vary in size from 240 watts to 1,200 watts, depending on individual requirements. Kyocera Solar and Gilat have been providing solar-powered communications systems to China since 1998, when more than 1,000 systems were delivered to Xinjiang Province. " 3:41:52 PM
