|Solar power is one of the most promising sources of energy for the 21st Century.
It's a technology that has truly come of age. After more than 50 years of refinement
and use in space as well as large-scale "solar farms" right here on Earth, solar
power is ready for mainstream use like never before.
Going solar is something you should seriously consider for your residence or commercial
facility. It's good for your monthly electric bills, and it's good for the planet.
|Characteristics of solar power
||Solar power systems generate electricity with zero emission
of CO2, SOx, Nox or other gases associated with global
warming and acid rain.
||Solar power systems can convert nature's sunlight into an
unlimited supply of energy.
||The amount of sunlight striking earth in any given hour
contains light energy equivalent to the total world energy consumption for one
|An indispensable source of energy
At Mitsubishi Electric we are dedicated to promoting solar power systems as an
indispensable source of clean energy for the future. Photovoltaic (PV) modules,
which comprise the core of the technology, drew much attention in Kyoto, Japan
in December 1997, at the Third Session of the Conference of the Parties to the
U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP3), generally referred to as "The
At the conference, developed nations agreed to take measures to reduce the production
of greenhouse gases such as CO2. One of the most promising
approaches is the adoption of solar power systems, which generate electricity
with zero emission of CO2. At Mitsubishi Electric, we approach
this commitment with the utmost sincerity.
