Solar EV Charging SystemIn 2015, Toshiba America's technologies are on track to:

  • Reduce CO2 emissions by 490 million tons in FY 2015; and
  • Increase sales of our low-carbon technologies to approximately $23 billion** in FY 2015.

Toshiba's technology is making it possible to reach out to new sources of clean energy. In 2013, residents of Carmel, Indiana welcomed one of the most advanced plug-in car-charging stations in the world at their local mall, thanks to a partnership between Toshiba, Simon Property Group, Duke Energy, the Itochu Corporation and Energy Systems Networks. The Plug-In Ecosystem reduces the major impact that fast-charging cars can have on the electric grid. Cars get power from the grid, but the solar panels generate electricity to be stored in the 42-kilowatt-hour Toshiba battery, which can then be withdrawn by Duke Energy to offset the charger's load.

Five additional solar energy projects underway in Massachusetts will be capable of generating 9.3 MW of power for local use in conjunction with Citizens Energy.
