Environment:Environmental Topics Vol.1 Hamamatsu Business Office Solar power generation system

Fuji Eco Cycle Co., Ltd. having a plant in the premises of the Hamamatsu Business Office installed solar panels on the building of Fuji Eco Cycle Co., Ltd. in its premises from December 2017, and switched about 30% of power generation (about 510 MWh per year) to renewable energy.

Through this activity, we expect reducing CO2 emission by 275 tons per year in the whole business office. It is equivalent to annual CO2 emission of about 56 households (Note 1).
