Kao Fires Up 1.5MW of Solar Plants at Its Factory in Tochigi

Kao Corp introduced two rooftop solar power plants with a total output of 1.5MW at its Tochigi Plant (Haga-gun, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan) and two other rooftop solar power plants with a total output of 336kW at its Toyohashi Plant (Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture) and started to operate them.

The four rooftop solar plants are expected to generate about 1,900MWh of electricity per year, eliminating about 1,100t of CO2. All the electricity generated at the plants is consumed in house.

They were built by using the “Subsidy for Projects to Reduce CO2 Emissions, Etc for Fiscal 2019” of the Japanese Ministry of the Environment.
