Kioxia Installs Solar Power Generation Systems at Kitakami and Yokkaichi Plant Kingdoms in Japan in Major New Sustainability Campaign
- Kioxia Group is raising the usage of renewable energy by installing large-scale solar power generation systems for the first time at its Kitakami Plant and Yokkaichi Plant.
Mounted on the roof of flash memory fabrication centers, the new solar power systems will certainly be the biggest of their kind at any kind of semiconductor plant in Japan.1 With a total creating ability of about 7.5 megawatts (MW), the new solar power systems are expected to produce concerning 7,600 megawatt hrs (MWh) of electricity each year for Kioxia and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 3,200 bunches annually. With the new solar power systems, we will accelerate our efforts to attend to climate modification, among the essential purposes of our monitoring approach.
The solar power generation system at Fab1 of our Kitakami Plant ended up being functional just recently while the system at Fab6 of our Yokkaichi Plant will certainly be functional in June of this year.
Kioxia Group has actually set the objective of sourcing 100% of its energy from sustainable sources by FY2040, including solar power. We will certainly continue to deal with climate modification proactively as well as aim to develop sustainably for the benefit of society.
