Mitsubishi supplies 1.2 MW of solar panels to Tokyo International Airport

A total of 7,946 modules have been installed on the roof of the two passenger terminals and car parking, according to the company. This covers an area of 9,411 square meters, or the equivalent to 36 tennis courts, it said.

Broken down, the system contains a 829.54 kW sub-system composed of 4,366 PV modules installed on the roof of Terminal 1, a 167.2kW system of 880 modules installed on the roof of Terminal 2 and a 249.75kW system of 2,700 half-size modules on the roof of the P4 car parking.

Mitsubishi explained that the installation is expected to generate 1,157 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity annually, thus reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by 362 tons.
