Kyocera installs solar PV at Japanese schools

Kyocera Corporation has installed solar power generating systems at over 1200 public schools in Japan.

The use of solar power at schools in Japan has grown exponentially in recent years with the government’s School New Deal initiative, which aims to reform school facilities including earthquake-resistance and the use of solar power, Kyocera says.

In April 2009, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology set a target of increasing the number of public elementary, middle and high schools with solar power installations to 12,000.
