Sharp's New Solar Energy System

As concern over climate change continues to grow, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of companies that seek to profit through the development of sustainable technologies. This trend is perhaps most evident in the solar cell industry. However, despite the influx of new solar companies, Sharp, one of the industry’s original players, continues to lead the world in solar cell production. In fact, the Japanese electronics giant has been the leading manufacturer of solar cells since 2000. It also appears as if the company has no plans to relinquish its status as industry leader. Earlier this week, Sharp announced the release of its upgraded residential solar energy system. The system has been modified to allow for integration into all rooftop types. In addition, the new modules incorporate technologies that allow for the generation of up to six times more power compared to conventional models. Finally, the system is equipped with a communication function, which allows for remote monitoring. The new solar energy systems will be available in 3.0 and 4.5kW models.
