Suntech to supply solar systems for UN deployment

A spokesperson tells pv magazine that the Chinese solar cell manufacturer has entered into a framework agreement to supply Peak International Trade – a global trading company and consultant – with the systems over the next three years.

They go on: "The solar systems will ultimately be deployed by United Nations to provide electricity to support operations in remote locations, largely in Africa. This is the first step in the process, and we hope to provide more information about the systems and how they are deployed in the coming months."
