Kyocera increases solar power generation system at its manufacturing plant in Fukushima by 194kW to a total of 230kW

Kyocera today announced that it has significantly increased the size of the solar power generation system at its Tanagura manufacturing plant in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan by 194kW to a total of 230kW — making it the largest installation at a domestic Kyocera Group facility. The full installation began operation on June 30. Kyocera has been proactively installing solar power generating systems at its headquarters, manufacturing plants and sales offices both in Japan and overseas as part of a wider policy to reduce the company’s environmental burden.

Recently Kyocera installed a 130kW system at Kyocera Elco Corporation’s new headquarters and a 58kW solar power generating system at its Yokohama Sales Office, and plans to implement energy reduction targets of over 15% at all of the 8 locations by instituting energy conservation measures targeting air conditioner use, stand-by equipment, and lighting.
