Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ)*2 has successfully installed solar power system at ponds of plant in Thailand run by MinebeaMitsumi Inc. The plant is the Bang Pa-in Plant in Ayutthaya Province. 

MinebeaMitsumi plans to install solar power systems in its facilities worldwide, as part of an environmental move towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its operations. Operation began on July 7, 2023, after the completion of obtaining the permit & License on the solar power system. 

The solar power system has an output of 10.1 MW-dc, which is one of the largest solar power systems installed by SESJ in factory territory in Thailand*3. 

The solar power will generate approximately 14,529 MWh annually. This translates to an annual reduction in greenhouse gases of roughly 7,543 t-CO2. The generated electricity will be used within the plants, allowing them to reduce the amount of electricity they purchase from the grid. 

SESJ is ever more committed to contributing to further expansion of renewable energy worldwide.
