ELECTRICITY FOR AGRICULTURE STUDENTS
Working in partnership with its solar subsidiary (Tenesol, now SunPower), Total funded and installed a solar energy system at Guinea’s national livestock farming and agriculture school (École Nationale d’Élevage et d’Agriculture) to provide electricity to all of the school’s buildings. The new system has improved working conditions for the students at the school, who previously had to work by candlelight after sundown. The school’s administrative staff are also now able to use their computing equipment. This initiative is the result of a consultation process with the Ministry for Technical Education, Vocational Training and Employment.
