Kyocera Corporation will install its own solar power generation systems at six of its factories by March 2011, with a total of 593kW, as part of its initiative to promote environmental protection.

In this way the number of manufacturing sites equipped with solar generators will increase to 10 - all in Japan - the total number of the company equipped sites to 20.

The new installed systems, along with the existing ones in its group companies inside and outside Japan, will boost the company's total output to 1815 kW (1.8MW).

Among the six factories to be equipped with new systems are factory Yasu (Shiga), which manufactures solar cells, Kitami factory (Hokkaido), which mainly produces mobile phones, and Sendai factory (Kyushu), which mainly produces components ceramic and ceramic knives.

Systems due to be installed in the six factories, are expected to generate 591,000 kWh per year in total - equivalent to annual consumption of approximately 125 standard households.

Today, Kyocera has installed solar power generating systems in 14 company locations throughout the world.
