The Solar Ark
The Solar Ark is a symbol of our goal of achieving a "clean energy society." As well as being a center for local community activities, it has become a local landmark.
Funds matching the equivalent domestic cost of the annual electicity output of the Solar Ark's solar modules are transferred to the SANYO Environmental Fund to support various environmental conservation activities.
Since the Solar Ark was created, we have accumulated data on the power-generating performance of the photovoltaic system. At the photovoltaic conference in Europe, the thesis we delivered analyzing that data received an excellent response.
What we are trying to express through the SOLAR ARK
Just what is "a prosperous life?" And what is necessary to ensure that it lasts into the future?
The 21st century has been named the century of the environment. Finding solutions to environmental problems is something we cannot ignore if we want to ensure the future of mankind. What is necessary right now is to improve the awareness of each and every one of us, so we can accumulate the strength and ability needed to solve this problem. It's also a matter of generating the wisdom needed to live in harmony with the earth.
It is because of this that we would like to work with our children - who will bear with them the responsibility for the future - to develop an empathy for both science and ecology.
With this in mind, we created the SOLAR ARK project as a place where people can feel the vital importance of the environment, as well as the enjoyment and wonder of science.
We hope to continue to work on this project together with your hel - to develop and expand the SOLAR ARK project so that it participates in society on a larger scale, and provides a link to a more prosperous life for the people of the world. This is our wish.
