In this age of social media and technology, it’s hard to imagine how we
could exist without power. However, in some corners of the world,
electricity is still not something that is readily available. At
SunEdison, we believe that it is possible to power the world through
solar energy. We are actively partnering with over 15 countries around
the globe to bring renewable energy solutions that help to make a
difference in people’s lives.
SunEdison Brings Light to Rural India
the small village of Meerwada, India, the last rays of sunlight used to
mean the end of all daily activities. By bringing solar-generated
electricity to this community, SunEdison has built a center that
provides a safe environment for after-school studies, meal preparation
and family gatherings. For the people of Meerwada, our off-grid solar PV
solutions have secured a better energy future and have opened a world
of brilliant possibilities. Where this power will take them? We can’t
say. But together we are shaping a future that's brighter for everyone.
As a global leader in solar power,
we’re using the energy from the sun to bring electricity to the planet
by making it accessible and affordable, while maintaining an unwavering
commitment to environmental stewardship. These three pillars are the
basis for SunEdison’s corporate social responsibility commitments which
link to every aspect of our business through integration into our brand,
values, operations and business strategy.
By its very nature, solar power is a renewable energy source that
should be available to everyone. SunEdison is committed to the delivery
of practical solar energy solutions, and we’ve got the track record to
prove it. Our cumulative solar installations total 500 MW of solar
energy generating capacity.
SunEdison directly enables the revolution in renewable energy
throughout the world. It is our goal to reach grid parity for solar
energy – making solar cost-competitive with the existing grid power
cost. To reach this goal, we are developing innovative technology that
will provide value to our customers while significantly lowering costs.
With great power comes great responsibility. In an industry where
global demand for solar solutions is expected to reach 50.7 gigawatts
(GW) by 2012, we are fiercely committed to create sustainable solutions
that respect the environment. In 2010, our projects helped to offset
approximately 94,151 metric tons of CO2 emissions (MTCO2e).
