Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ)*2 has installed a solar power system at the Cebu Mitsumi Plant run by MinebeaMitsumi Inc. in the city of Danao, Cebu Island, the Philippines. Operation began on October 19, 2023, after a ceremony was held at the plant to mark the completion of the installation. 


The system has an output of around 7.9 MW dc, giving it one of the largest capacities*3 among self-consumption solar power systems installed on Japanese-affiliated factories in the Philippines. The system will generate an estimated 12,806 MWh annually. This equates to an annual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of roughly 6,833 t-CO2. The generated electricity will be used within the plant, allowing it to reduce the amount of electricity it purchases from the grid. 

MinebeaMitsumi is installing solar power systems at its bases around the world as part of an environmental policy of further reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its operations. After Thailand*4, the Philippines is the second country where SESJ has installed a solar power system on a MinebeaMitsumi plant. 

SESJ remains committed to spreading the use of renewable energy around the world.
