Toyota of Baja California Installs PV Carport

Toyota TMMBC facilityToyota Motor Manufacturing of Baja California (TMMBC) has installed a new photovoltaic carport from Kyocera Solar, the companies said.

The new carport canopy, which covers a portion of the TMMBC facility parking area, is expected to reduce carbon emissions by more than 28 tons each year. Designed and installed by Todo Solar MX, the system includes 24 kW of Kyocera solar modules and an SMA Sunny Boy power inverter to generate up to 121 kWh of renewable electricity per day, the companies said.

Past projects between Kyocera and Toyota include a 2,000 kW Kyocera solar power generating system at Toyota’s Tsutsumi Plant in Japan. Additionally, Kyocera’s solar cells are integrated into a solar powered ventilation system available as an option on Toyota Prius automobiles. Both companies said that they have environmental management systems in their Baja, California manufacturing facilities to lower greenhouse gas emissions, conserve energy, reduce waste, promote recycling and enhance sustainability.

Kyocera Solar, Inc., which produces and supplies solar photovoltaic modules and systems, is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, with regional sales affiliates in the Americas and Australia, and solar module manufacturing facilities operated by Kyocera Mexicana, S.A. de C.V. of Tijuana, Mexico. TMMBC has been manufacturing Toyota trucks and cars in its Baja California facility since 2002.
