  Water of the Sun: In remote areas, pumping water from a well can be time-consuming and difficult. To address this challenge, Schneider Electric provides rural communities with Water of the Sun, a fully automatic solar-powered water pumping system. Now, villages with no grid power or erratic power can maximize use of solar energy to pump water for domestic use and/or irrigation purposes.
  Off-grid solutions for Senegal villages: In collaboration with the Senegal authorities,Schneider Electric provided three villages with a micro off-grid solar-powered facility known as Villasol. The plant supplies electricity to the main communal buildings in Dar Salam, Thiasky, and Kak: their schools, community centres, and health centres. It also provides a battery charging station so village inhabitants can recharge their Schneider Electric–provided In-Diya lamps.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Schneider Electric (Palatine, IL).


    There is a very long wait from the interview date. Very specific on what they need. SAP knowledge is a must. They need over 5 years of experience in credit and collections.
