Solar Power by Kyocera Realizing the possibilities of sunlight as a future energy source, Kyocera built an early track record of innovation in solar power technology.


Solar Power in Every Corner of the World

Kyocera’s solar power generating systems are installed not only on homes, but also schools, commercial buildings and public facilities. All around the world these systems harness sunlight and generate electricity in cities and towns, as well as villages which would otherwise have no access to power.

Installing Solar Panels on Residential Rooftops for More Than 20 Years

In 1993, Kyocera launched Japan’s first residential solar power generating system. The solar panels used in that system have proven long-term reliability, and Kyocera has continued to promote the spread of private power generation across the globe. We offer products that fit a wide range of rooftop designs for smart installation on any type of home, including gable roofs, hip roofs, flat roofs, shed roofs, complex hip roofs and large apartment building roofs.

Harnessing the Bounty of the Sun across the Globe

Kyocera’s solar panels are used worldwide due to their high quality and reliability. They are used in more than 10,000 locations including office buildings, hospitals, retirement homes, schools, commercial facilities, airports, factories, waterworks and purification plants, parks, large-scale solar power plants, and even in some places with extreme weather conditions such as at 3,000 meters (9, 843 feet) above sea level and in the Antarctic region.

Our integrated production system includes all processes in-house, from casting silicon and manufacturing cells to assembling finished modules, making it one of the largest multicrystalline silicon solar cell manufacturing systems of its type in the world.
