  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.
  Introducing trades in Cambodia: Since 2009, Centre Kram Ngoy in Cambodia has been a partner in the Schneider Electric™ BipBop Training Programme. Together, they are introducing electrical and automation trades to people from the BoP (bottom of the pyramid), enabling them to contribute to Cambodian development.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Schneider Electric in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter, who did a short phone screen. Then the recruiter sent me a link to a video interview website to do an interview where I'd answer a series of questions using my webcam. The website was a bit odd and kept disconnecting during the middle of questions, so whoever watched my interview must have assumed I was a bumbling idiot. A personal, face-to-face interview seemed to me to be a much better option, since the company was literally down the road from my apartment. I never heard back from the company about the status of my application.

    The questions were very standard and non-technical. For example: "What is one thing you've accomplished during the past year that you're the most proud of?".
