The solar system will produce around 3,970 kWh of clean power per year, enough to help the paint manufacturer's factories meet 27% of their electricity needs, the statement reads.

Under the agreement with the customer, TotalEnergies will also operate the rooftop PV plant, while TOA Paint will pay for the power the solar array generates for 15 years.
