Tenesol working on a €4.5 million solar telecoms project in Morocco

Following-on from a €25 million project partnership between Tenesol and Morocco’s National Electricity Office for PV power systems to be deployed across 26,000 rural homes in Morocco, the SunPower subsidiary is also currently working on a €4.5 million solar telecoms project in Morocco. The company is supplying more than 4,500 PV panels to Maroc Telecom for use at 42 sites across the country. Overall, Tenesol claims to have installed 3,000 systems for the telecoms industry.

The use of PV in off-grid telecoms applications is also being used for charging mobile phones - a key challenge for mobile operators attempting to expand market footprint and address over 1.6 billion people living without electricity supply. 

Tenesol is also exhibiting its telecoms offerings at the Mobile World Congress 2012 at the end of February.

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
