Kyocera Corporation announced that it has significantly increased the size of the solar power generation system at its Tanagura manufacturing plant in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan by 194kW to a total of 230kW — making it the largest installation at a domestic Kyocera Group facility. The full installation began operation on June 30. Kyocera has been proactively installing solar power generating systems at its headquarters, manufacturing plants and sales offices both in Japan and overseas as part of a wider policy to reduce the company's environmental burden.

With power supply shortages expected during the summer months due to the effects of the March 11 earthquake, the Japanese government has placed restrictions on electricity use to require high-volume users in the Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. and Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. service areas to reduce electricity consumption by 15% compared to last year. In response, Kyocera revised its installation schedule to prioritize this facility in order to achieve concrete energy conservation goals. This further increase gives the plant a total of 230kW in total — which at peak performance will cover 8.2% of the facilities energy use, allowing it to reduce its consumption of grid-provided electricity. In combination with the solar energy produced, the facility expects to be able to achieve its 15% energy-reduction target by undertaking various measures such as using power generators, setting air-conditioning to 28 degrees Celsius (82.4 F), turning off unnecessary lighting, and setting all office computers to low-power mode.

With this recent addition, 26 locations in the Kyocera Group's global network are solar power-equipped with a total of over 2.2MW. Kyocera will continue to proactively introduce solar power at its Group facilities and strive to reduce energy consumption, as well as promote renewable energy use with the goal of contributing to environmental preservation.
