Abstract: This paper focuses on the usage of solar panels to generate electricity in remote areas and less economically developed countries (LEDC’s) with a specific focus on countries that lie along the equator, using Tanzania as a pilot study. This paper also examines and evaluates Saleh’s (1978) research in which he states ‘most of the developing countries lie within the “solar – belt” i.e., in the latitude range 35° N - 35 ° S which is characterized by the higher intensity of solar radiation.’ Moreover, this paper also acknowledges that large scale operations such as the ones being undertaken in countries like India which seek to replace conventional regional grids with solar arrays are efficient and more practical for larger settlements, they are time consuming to construct and more expensive than the communities can afford. Additionally, this paper looks into the ideas put forward by Komendantova, Patt, Barras, & Battaglini, (2012) in saying that an absence of government guarantees is a barrier to the development of such technologies and projects in developing countries.
