The carport photovoltaic or pv (PV) system will certainly be set up at the airport's parking lot in the province of Hiroshima with the output being provided to the terminal structure.
Under the agreement, Mitsui Fudosan will certainly install, have, and run the solar energy generation system. The real estate developer has actually selected Yokohama Environmental Design Co as the construction firm.
