December 13 (Renewables Now) - Toshiba Corp (TYO:6502) on Wednesday unveiled a contract to deliver 6 MW of solar panels in Thailand, saying this is its biggest order of its kind in the Asian country.

The deal, the value of which was not disclosed, was awarded by Thailand-based Eight Solar Co Ltd to Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corp. The equipment will be used in rooftop projects involving six stores within the Home Pro home improvement chain, in line with its plans to lower its dependence on conventional power supply and reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The rooftop photovoltaic (PV) plants are expected to become operational in January 2018.

Toshiba noted it will support Thailand in its efforts to “realize a low carbon society and stable power supply.” The country, which is heavily reliant on fossil fuels, aims to increase the share of solar power to 25% by 2021.
