Trina Solar Improves Medical Treatment for 85,000 People in Malawi

Trina Solar has announced the donation of solar modules to three health care centres in Malawi servicing over 85,000 people. Together with partner Innovation: Africa, Trina Solar will make clean energy available to two remote medical centres and a community-based organisation offering HIV/AIDS support, vocational training, adult education, orphan care and more.

In combination with a storage system, these solar modules will allow all three facilities to offer care and services to their communities at night and other conditions of low visibility.

Today, over 1.3 billion people live without electricity. Nearly 600 million of those people live in Africa. Trina Solar, Innovation: Africa and shipper Schenker International B.V. have joined forces to bring electricity into these communities in Malawi.

The Innovation: Africa partnership began in May 2011, when Trina Solar provided the solar modules for the installation of solar energy systems at Visezi Medical Clinic in the Bagamoyo District of Tanzania. The Visezi Medical Clinic serves a community of 2,770 people, but until last year they had no way to offer proper medical care at night. Women gave birth in rooms heavy with kerosene fumes, and doctors could often barely see the patients they were treating.

With a solar energy system, Visezi Medical Clinic can now offer 24-hour care in sanitary, well-lit conditions.

"We are pleased to support local communities in need with our technology" said Ben Hill, Head of Trina Solar Europe. "Looking forward, our aim is to continue to bring solar power to improve the quality of life of people who live without access to electricity."

Sivan Ya'ari, Founder and President of Innovation: Africa explained, "Trina Solar has been an ideal partner in our work to uplift African communities. With their solar panel donations, we are able to spend our resources where they are needed most: identifying communities without energy and working with them to build sustainable solar projects. We have ambitious goals, and with Trina's support we hope to double our impact in the next year."
