Kyocera’s solar module production reaches 5-GW milestone

Since the company began producing solar modules in 1975, they have now produced 5GW -worth of solar modules, enough to supply individual 3.5 kilowatt photovoltaic systems for more than 1.4 million homes.

Japan’s Kyocera Corporation has exceeded the 5-gigawatt milestone in accumulated production of solar modules.

Since the company began producing solar modules in 1975, they have now produced 5GW -worth of solar modules, enough to supply individual 3.5 kilowatt photovoltaic systems for more than 1.4 million homes.

In a statement, Kyocera cited rising global demand for renewable energy resources as having spurred their rapid increase in solar production. The company intends to keep up this fast pace, targeting annual production of 1.4 GW for the current fiscal year (April 2014 to March 2015), up from approximately 1.2 GW in the previous fiscal year.

Solar is becoming an attractive solution for countries, businesses and consumers who wish to reduce their impact on the environment and dependence of coal and nuclear energies. This shift to solar has become especially evident in Japan, which launched an aggressive feed-in-tariff program in July 2012.

Kyocera provided solar modules to Japan’s largest solar power plant, the 70 megawatt Kagoshima Nanatsujima Mega Solar Power Plant which went online last November 1 (see related story).

The company’s solar activities in Japan will expand even further if a recently-announced concept near Nagasaki comes into fruition. Five companies, including Kyocera, have come to an agreement to investigate the possibility of operating a 430 MW project on the island of Ukujima. The project will use Kyocera solar modules. – EcoSeed Staff
