: "With a current PV manufacturing capacity at its Japanese factories of more than 100 MW, Sharp
plans to expand production to 200 MW this year. .. [A spokesperson] said solar PV packages today are confusing with components often coming from several different manufacturers. Within a year, Sharp will produce every part and piece of the system, each, made to work together." 3:23:29 PM
Solar Power Brightens Villagers' Lives in Northern Syria
: "The Japan International Cooperation Agency installed solar panels to supply electricity in all the villages, including individual systems for homes in three villages - Fedre, Katoura and Kaliff - and a central system in Zarzita." UNDP provided training assistance. "Surveys have found that the villagers are happy with the solar systems. Although they produce less power than would be available from the national grid, solar panels provide a workable alternative to the long waiting list for extensions of the grid. The units have proven reliable and have not been vandalized. Villagers prefer them to kerosene for lighting. "
