Honda Commits to the Environment By Installing On-Site Solar Arrays in California
Honda Commits to the Environment By Installing On-Site Solar Arrays in California! Last month, unveiled one of the largest solar arrays at the American Honda Motor Co. campus in Torrance, Ca. This is one of Honda’s largest on-site renewable energy installations anywhere in the world.
The new solar array features more than 6,000 panels and is expected to generate an impressive 3,000 megawatt hours (MWh) annually which will roughly offset 30% of purchased electricity for the entire American Honda Torrance campus. This solar energy will also provide 100% of the electric vehicle charging energy in the on-campus parking lot. This whole initiative aligns with Honda targeting a 50% reduction in its total company CO2 emissions globally by 2050.
“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.”
