Kyocera Solar Modules for Toyota Marine Recreational Boats to lower CO2 emissions

Kyocera has started supplying solar modules for Toyota Solar Panels, which are to be installed in recreational boats manufactured and sold by Toyota . Toyota Solar Panels can also be installed as an optional unit on recreational boats manufactured by other companies. Electricity generated by the solar modules can be used to charge a battery to provide a supplemental, durable power source for the various electronics and appliances installed on recreational boats. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, the solar charging system prevents a battery from deteriorating during extended periods of non-use while docked.

This solar module will be exhibited in the Kyocera booth at PV Japan 2010, the solar energy trade exhibition, held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan from June 30 through July 2, 2010.
