Energy Conversion Devices Inc. (ECD) says a total of 1.8 MW of its UNI-SOLAR brand photovoltaic laminates were installed on the Toyota Parts Center Europe building in Belgium.
Toyota recently officially inaugurated the solar panel park, which was financed and built by Blue Planet Solar NV, which will also operate the project. The installation includes 12,800 panels on the roof and covers 861,000 square feet.
The rooftop solar installation will produce between 15% and 20% of the annual electricity requirements of the facility, according to ECD. With a peak power supply of 1.84 MW, the modules can produce 1,620 MWh per year.
