The World Bank project targets delivery of increased electricity and promote reliability of electricity service through the use of solar energy in assisting and improving the living conditions of the herder population and off-grid village communities.

The two systems, 202.5kW and 102.6kW (totaling 305.1kW), have been built in the villages of Gobi-Altai and Bayantooroi, respectively, which are both located in the Gobi Desert region of western Mongolia. The region encounters harsh environments that can reach -30C in the winter and previously suffered from volatile power supply.

Kyocera has been active in the solar energy business in Mongolia for many years, taking part in a project by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) to deliver portable solar power generating systems for 200 nomadic herding families' yurts between 1992 and 1996. Moreover, in 2011, with the Japanese government's Official Development Assistance (ODA), Kyocera modules will be utilized for a 453.18kW grid-tie system for the Genghis Khan International Airport in Ulan Bator City.

The systems were supplied and installed by the company's subsidiary, Kyocera (Tianjin) Sales & Trading Corporation.
