Corporation has reached a new solar cell production milestone with over
2GW in cumulative production, equivalent to one quarter of the
estimated 8GW total produced worldwide by the end of 2007. Sharp has
been involved in the solar power industry for 49 years.
With the start of operations (fiscal 2009) of its new thin film solar cell plant in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Sharp will rapidly surpass the current GW milestone as the facility will have an annual capacity of about 1GW on its own.
