Kikkoman Foods Inc. will install a 106.6 kW solar photovoltaic system at its facility in Folsom, Calif. The new system is expected to begin operation in late September.
A total of 576 lead-free-solder 185 W Mitsubishi Electric solar modules will be used in the installation. Mitsubishi Electric modules were chosen for their high energy output in real life conditions and their use of 100% lead-free solder, Kikkoman Foods says.
The array will be installed as a fixed carport over the employee and visitor parking lot, where it will provide shade for cars while creating energy for the company. The system is expected to produce 150,000 kWh annually.
