Kyocera to Supply Solar Modules for Large Installation in Japan (posted 12/18/09)
Kyocera has previously provided solar modules for large-scale power plants in Europe, the world's largest solar energy market. Governmental subsidies and a planned feed-in-tariff system are increasing demand for solar energy in Japan as well, both for residential applications and among public utility companies, which have confirmed plans to build large-scale solar power plants by 2020.
Kyocera first began research into solar energy in 1975. Over the years, the company has developed a fully integrated production process that allows it to ensure high quality by controlling every phase of manufacturing, from procuring raw silicon to producing photovoltaic cells and assembling finished modules. By developing high-efficiency multicrystalline solar cells for a multitude of applications, Kyocera will continue to contribute to energy independence and the preservation of the global environment.
