The multi-million dollar solar project, installed by Pacific Power Management of Auburn, California, qualifies for $1.8 million in rebates from regional electricity utility Pacific Gas & Electric.

Mitsubishi Electric’s corrosion-resistant modules contain no lead solder. Instead of lead-solder coating for the cells, Mitsubishi Electric developed silver electrodes that reportedly offer better weatherproofing and higher photovoltaic (PV) module conversion efficiency.

Gina Heng, director of sales and marketing for Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA’s PV division, said: We are pleased that Mitsubishi Electric PV technology was chosen for this major agricultural installation. Agribusiness shares our concern about the rising cost of energy and solar can help provide predictable energy costs over the long-term.
