[Image] The photovoltaic power system is the symbol for energy conservation.

A 100kW photovoltaic power system was installed on the roof of the new production building. Its operation status can be seen live from a large monitor.

Tokyo Works, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc. is situated in Kodaira, Tokyo, an area that is still reminiscent of the Musashino region. Tokyo Works is engaged in the development, design, and manufacture of communication and information, broadcasting and video system products. The factory has achieved 100% registration rate in electronic manifests in Japan, to clarify the flow of waste treatment. The factory has promoted recycling and the reduction of discharged waste, and has achieved zero emission* since FY 2008. The new production building that was constructed in FY 2013 is an environmentally conscious Eco-Factory that uses high efficiency LEDs for all lighting. In addition, a 100kW photovoltaic power system was installed on the roof. Its operation status is displayed live on large monitors set up in 3 locations throughout the premises. Allowing visiting customers and employees to see its status at all times leads to the increase of environmental awareness.

The photovoltaic power system has increased employee interest in electricity conservation.
