Toyo Suisan processing factory to reduce 18.9 tons of CO2 emissions annually by installing Mitsubishi PV System

Mitsubishi Electric announced today that it has ompleted installation of a 62 kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) system at Toyo Suisan Kaisha, Ltd.’s Kanto Factory in Tatebayashi City, Gunma Prefecture, Japan. The installation, which is Toyo Suisan’s first, has also become the largest PV system at a business operation in Tatebayashi City.The electricity generated by a total of 330 PV modules installed on a surface area of 460 square meters will cover part of the electricity consumption used for air conditioning and lighting at the Toyo Suisan Group’s largest instant noodle processing factory in Japan. Annually, the system is expected to generate approximately 60 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity and reduce 18.9 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

To reduce carbon dioxide emissions, Toyo Suisan- the Japanese food processing and sales company well known for its Maruchan brand, decided to install a 62kW system at its Kanto Factory, partly funded by subsidies from the New Energy Promotion Council in Japan.
