Environmental consideration points
This is the onboard solar cell module to be mounted on the roof of a vehicle.Electricity generated by the module is used to ventilate the air inside of the car. It reduces the air-conditioning load whenusing an automobile, thus contributing to the prevention of global warming. It is durable to withstand use on the rooftop of the car, also contributing to improvement of resource cycling.
