The new Mississauga-based company is able to provide enterprise customers with a newly developed solar photovoltaic (PV) module product line, the SCI Series, designed to meet domestic content requirements under the Ontario Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) incentives program.
“Launching this new company brings us a leap forward in accomplishing Panasonic’s 100-year anniversary vision of becoming the Number 1 Green Innovation Company in the Electronics Industry by 2018,” said Walter Buzzelli, Managing Director, Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada Inc.. “End-to-end energy solutions are the way of the future, and being able to provide products that save, generate and store energy, allow Panasonic the unique position to propose practical solutions for today while working to further develop innovative solutions for tomorrow.”
