Even fashion buildings are concerned about the global environment

HOOP is a shopping center and annex to the Kintetsu Abeno Department Store. It is located in the shopping and entertainment district of Abeno Ward in Osaka, and has approximately 350 m2 of solar power generation panels installed on the building wall. By generating 10 kW of power, these provide 1% of the power consumption of the entire facility, and eliminate 5.5 tons of CO2 emissions every year. As a high-profile representative of the local area, this building is doing its part to help solve environmental problems.
