Solar cells

Our thin-film solar cells begin protecting the environment before they’ve even left the factory. In comparison with conventional crystal silicon solar cells, they take only half as much energy to manufacture – this is because they are made of a compound of copper, indium, gallium and selenium (CIGS).

So not only do our next-generation solar panels provide CO2-free power when in use, they also produce far less CO2 when being made.

Put to good use

What better way to test the effectiveness of our thin-film panels than in our own factories. They’re currently installed at 14 Honda sites as part of our goal to operate the world’s cleanest car plants. Our solar cells are also currently on sale for domestic and industrial use in Japan.
