Toray Turns to Solar Power

NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI | Toray Plastics (America) will begin construction in Q2 2011 on a $2 million, 446-kW solar photovoltaic field on its 70-acre campus in North Kingstown. Toray estimates the efficient clean-energy system, which is designed to produce a higher-energy output when compared with conventional fixed-mounted PV panels, will generate 625 megawatt hr/yr, help curb escalating energy costs, and reduce CO2 emissions by 340 tons/yr. Funding for the solar field will come from Toray, grants and loans from the Rhode Island Economic Development Corp.'s Renewable Energy fund, and state and federal grants made possible by the Federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Construction is expected to be completed by Q3 2011.
