4000 BP solar systems for rural telecom in Peru
: The Export-Import Bank is financing a US$2.4 million telecommunications project in Peru using BP Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. "With this project, known as Fitel, 4,000 PV systems (approximately 580 kW) will be provided by BP Solar Latin America. This will enable remote community centers that currently lack access to the electricity grid to conduct voice and data transmissions, which may include telephone, fax and internet services. .. The installation of this rural telecommunication system in Peru will benefit close to 3,000,000 people (ca. 10% of the current population of the country), providing them with telecom access and connection." 8:47:29 AM
