Mitsubishi Installs 85 kW Photovoltaic System on Makita’s Main Factory Rooftop

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that it has installed an 85-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of Makita Corporation’s main factory in Takamatsu City, Japan.

The PV system, which is the first for Makita, comprises PV modules, inverters and other equipment, and will begin generating electricity later this month.

Electricity generated by a total of 448 PV modules installed over a surface area of 700 square meters will cover approximately 3 percent of the manufacturing, air conditioning and lighting requirements at Makita’s marine diesel engine factory. The installation is expected to generate approximately 94,730 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually, and will help reduce environmental impact through the use of renewable energy, exemplifying Makita’s commitment towards creating a low-carbon society.
