Aiming to become a sustainable society, with environmentally aware government offices

In Hyogo Prefecture, the Nishi-Harima region is positioned as a health mecca -- aiming to be a sustainable society which harmonizes the activities of people and nature. The core facility is the Nishi-Harima Prefectural branch office (Kamigori-cho, Ako County), which has become an environmentally-aware government office by adopting a solar power generation system. The generating capacity of the photovoltaic modules installed on the main roof and garage roof is 506 kW, and this provides all the electricity used in the offices with clean energy.
