ProLogis, an owner and developer of distribution facilities, is to install its first solar photovoltaic system in Japan.
The company will install a 1 MW system at ProLogis Parc Zama I which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2009.
Robert Watson, ProLogis’ chief sustainability officer, said, ‘We are thrilled to announce our first solar installation in Japan, leading the way for future projects in the country,’ ‘ProLogis is committed to implementing enough renewable energy systems to obtain a combined generation capacity of over 25 million kWh per year by 2010; this project will certainly help us achieve that goal.’
Once operational, the photovoltaic system is estimated to generate approximately one million KWh per year, the company said.
In support of this project, the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, an affiliated agency of Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, has granted a subsidy to offset a portion of the project’s cost.
ProLogis owns, manages and develops distribution facilities, with operations in 136 markets across North America, Europe and Asia.
