KYOCERA Supplies Solar Modules for Recreational Boats

July 15, 2010

Kyocera Corp. has begun supplying solar modules for Toyota Solar Panels to be installed in recreational boats manufactured and sold by Toyota Motor Corp. The panels can also be installed as optional units 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.
