Panasonic Provides Power Supply Container in Indonesia as a Stand-alone Photovoltaic Power Package

Panasonic Corporation announced it installed the “Power Supply Container,” as a stand-alone photovoltaic power package that it developed, to the National Elementary School Karimunjawa 01 in Karimunjawa Island, Jepara District, Central Jawa Province, Indonesia. On July 17, 2014, a handover ceremony was held jointly with Koperasi Pundih Artah, a project partner; and the Institute of Business and Economic Democracy Foundation (IBEKA), an Indonesian NGO.

Karimunjawa is an area where electricity is available at night thanks to diesel generators. However, in the daytime these generators are stopped and no electricity can be used by the residents of the village. As no power for the village during the daytime interferes with administrative and commercial activities, improvement of the educational environment had been the top priority for the island. To solve this social issue, Koperasi Pundih Artah, which received Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security, IBEKA and Panasonic have launched a project for improving the educational environment, by supplying and installing the Power Supply Container, under the cooperation of Jepara District and the Embassy of Japan in Indonesia.

During school hours, the Power Supply Container gives support to improve the educational environment; children can use LED lighting fixtures, ceiling fans and audiovisual educational materials using PCs and TVs. When there are no classes, the electricity is sold to nearby areas through a management association of the Power Supply Container to contribute to activation of the regional community and improve the regional electricity infrastructure.

Panasonic has made efforts to provide the Power Supply Container and to offer IBEKA with technical assistance in this project. Meanwhile, IBEKA is giving support for establishing management associations in Karimunjawa for independent operation of power supplies as well as provides training and supports for their operation, management and maintenance to achieve a sustainable power supply in Karimunjawa.

Panasonic will further strive to extend a stable power supply to areas without electricity and backup power sources to places that suffer frequent power blackouts, and provide improved social support, including emergency power sources, in the event of disasters. The Company will provide a more rich and comfortable lifestyle in Indonesia and other emerging countries with problems in electricity infrastructure.

The Power Supply Container is equipped with twelve Panasonic “HIT(R)240” solar modules which have high conversion efficiency and can generate approximately 3 kW of electricity. It can also provide stored power from 24 built-in lead-acid storage batteries (17.2 kWh as total).

Features of the Power Supply Container

(1) Reliable quality performance
(2) Easy and quick assembly for portability and expansion
(3) Utilization of Panasonic accumulated technologies
