Photovoltaic Power Generation System
In March we began generating electricity from the photovoltaic power generation system installed at the entrance of the main gate. It has 1,050 panels and the total length is about 270m.
The power generation amount is 233kWh.
It is the largest clean power generation facility in the Rohm group. You can see how big it is while walking along the side road of the factory building.
It mainly covers electricity for air conditioning and lighting in the office building, contributing to CO₂ reduction of about 95,000kg per year.
Since the solar power generation system can be seen from the window of the bullet train,it also plays a role as a symbol for ROHM Group's CSR activities to stakeholders nationwide.
Welcome Cleanup Activities
Rohm Hamamatsu is a production base of Rohm group in Shizuoka prefecture. The members of Rohm Hamamatsu have been participating in the Hamamatsu city organized coastal cleanup activities "Welcome cleanup activities" once a year since 2009.
This activity is held every May in order to secure a beach where loggerhead turtles can lay eggs safely. The turtle is a protected species of Hamamatsu City.
Eight employees volunteered for this activity on May 14, 2017. Participants said that they were able to contribute to local environmental conservation and spend a meaningful time.
We will continue to actively participate in such activities in the future and contribute to the preservation of the landscape and the environment, which are important for local people.
