American Honda Motor has unveiled its 100kW solar-cell demonstration project at Honda Performance Development (HPD) in Santa Clarita, California featuring 800 thin-film CIGS solar panels manufactured by Honda Soltec. The project was designed and installed by Stellar Energy and includes a roof, carport and load dock canopy installation at the HPD headquarters and is said to be one of Honda's largest solar installations to date.

The 100kW system includes solar tracking and is designed power to power electric vehicle charging stations. The PV system's energy output is monitored in real-time through an Internet-based monitoring system.

"The installation of Honda Soltec solar panels along with an electric vehicle charging station at one of our most advanced Honda facilities in the United States represents a big step for us in our solar product development," said Mike Hodge, manager of Honda Home Energy for the Power Equipment Division of American Honda Motor. "What we learn from this new project at HPD will provide real-world data and feedback on the use of Honda solar cells in a typical commercial application."
