Italian warehouse gets massive solar roof

PRATO, ITALY - Japanese giant Mitsubishi Electric Corp. announced it completed the installation of its largest single rooftop solar panel system on a warehouse in Italy.

The solar panel system is a 2,906-kilowatt system for the logistic center for the Coop supermarket chain in Prato, Italy.

The system consists of 15,650 photovoltaic modules installed on a warehouse roof specifically designed for the purpose.

An additional 60 PV modules are installed in the parking lot tied to the facility.

Mitsubishi said the system would generate 3.2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, which is enough to meet the annual energy consumption for the logistics center. An extra 500,000 kWh of electricity will transfer into the national grid.

The company said it plans further expansions into the overseas solar power market with its January launch of high-output lead-free solder photovoltaic modules with outputs of up to 235W.
