Solar power equipment will be installed in the international terminal at Fukuoka Airport in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture during fiscal 2011.

According to the announcement made by Kyuden Ecosol Co., Ltd. (an affiliated company of Kyushu Electric Power Co. Inc.) on August 18, solar panels capable of generating 207 kilowatt hours will be installed on the roof of the Fukuoka Airport International Terminal Building. The power generated will be equivalent to about 1% of the electricity consumed annually at the terminal building and it will also contribute to energy conservation measures under guidelines to “address environmental problems” by reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the environment.

Regarding system operation, work such as construction and maintenance management will be handled by Kyuden Ecosol. Under airport building plans to use the Onsite Solar Power Generation Service to purchase green energy, detailed planning and construction will begin with the goal of completion during fiscal 2011.

Kyuden Ecosol is proposing the introduction of solar power to companies, local governments and other organizations. The solar power project at Fukuoka Airport has been made possible by the provision of subsidies from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s FY2010 New Energy Introduction Acceleration Support Project.
