Toray Plastics to begin construction on solar photovoltaic (PV) field

December 21/2010

(Plastemart) -- USAs only manufacturer of precision-performance polypropylene, polyester and bio-based films for packaging and industrial applications, Toray Plastics plans to begin construction in Q2-2011 on a US$2 mln 446 kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic (PV) field on its campus in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.

The new solar field will occupy approximately three acres, consist of 1,650 PV panels with utility-scale single-access trackers, and be the largest solar-powered system in the state. Toray estimates that the efficient clean-energy system, which is designed to produce a higher-energy output when compared with conventional fixed-mounted PV panels, will generate 625 megawatt hours (MW h) a year, help curb escalating energy costs, and reduce CO2 emissions by 340 tpa. Construction is expected to be completed by Q3-2011.
