Tokyo, February 21, 2011 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has installed an 85-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of Makita Corporation's main factory in Takamatsu City, Japan. The PV system, which is the first for Makita, comprises PV modules, inverters and other equipment, and will begin generating electricity later this month.
