Kyocera Solar Modules Installed on European Court of Justice (posted 5/19/09)

May 19, 2009

Kyocera Corp. recently announced that the European Court of Justice, officially known as the Court of Justice of the European Communities, has installed Kyocera solar modules on its new building. Kyocera produces its solar modules without procuring any semi-finished components in its fully integrated production process.

Quality was reportedly the decisive factor in installing a photovoltaic system composed of Kyocera solar modules at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. The roof of the new building will be lined with 2262 KC175GH-2P modules with a total capacity of 400 kWp, and the system is expected to generate an estimated 360,000 kWh annually. By using this environmentally friendly energy source, the court facilities will be contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

“We are proud that the roof-mounted system at the European Court of Justice will be equipped with Kyocera modules,” said Mitsuru Imanaka, president of Kyocera’s operations in Europe. “The confidence shown in our products adds further impetus in our continual pursuit for superior quality. While aiming to achieve this, we are driven by our resolve to develop environmentally friendly products and technologies that provide both environmental and economic advantages.”
