Mitsubishi Electric is providing 320 of its 180Wp panels, which will be installed by Sun Light & Power in conjunction with PG&E. The finished system can generate 57.6 kilowatts DC of clean energy, and aims to reduce the food bank’s operating costs and reduce demand on the region’s energy grid.

Gina Heng, director of sales and marketing for the photovoltaic division at Mitsubishi Electric, said: We are delighted to be selected as the photovoltaic manufacturer for the food bank project. With energy costs skyrocketing, non-profit organizations are really feeling the pinch. Along with Sun Light & Power, we were able to develop a package that will provide immediate savings to the food bank.
