A production base for solar cells, producing its own energy from sunlight

The Sharp Katsuragi Plant, located in Katsuragi City, Nara Prefecture, is a large production base for solar cells. Over 800 photovoltaic modules are installed at the plant itself. These provide power with energy from sunlight, and are also useful for gathering product data and conducting demonstration experiments. Plans are in store for significantly boosting production capacity for thin-film silicon panels here.
