Q and A

You said solar modules are made in factories, but you said that factories pollute and cause climate change?

A lot of the pollution caused by factories comes from the fact that they use non-renewable energy sources to generate their electricity, and as we’ve discussed, non-renewable energy sources usually create pollution. In Japan on top of our solar module manufacturing factory, we have one the world’s largest roof-mounted solar systems. So a lot of the electricity we use in our factory comes from a renewable (clean) energy source.
