Adding to the move of shifting from conventional source of energy to green energy, Honda in US has started a solar energy system at the American Honda Motor campus in Torrance, Calif. The plant, situated on the commercial building, is one of the largest solar arrays in Southern California.

The installation, standing at 2.0 MW direct current, is Honda’s one of the largest on-sight renewable energy installations anywhere in the world.

The new solar array of Honda consists of more than 6,000 panels and will generate approximately 3,000 KW per year. Honda says it will offset roughly 30% of the purchased electricity for the entire American Honda Torrance campus.

“Installing the solar and battery system on Honda’s Torrance campus is a win-win-win solution that will help Honda reach its renewable energy goals, save money and reduce CO2 emissions,” said Ryan Harty, manager of Connected and Environmental Business Development and Engineering at American Honda. “Charging electric vehicles with sunshine is also very satisfying for our associates. The transition to renewable energy and electric transportation go hand-in-hand.”

Honda is targeting a 50% reduction in its total company CO2 emissions on a global basis by 2050, compared to the year 2000. To help reach this goal and advance the company toward its vision of creating a carbon-free society, Honda is implementing renewable energy projects throughout its operations.
