Honda is Entering the Solar Power Business


Honda has become the first automaker to enter into the solar cell business. Honda said that it plans to start mass-producing thin-film solar cells in 2007 on the site of a car plant in Japan.

The solar cells will be composed of non-silicon materials and will consume half as much energy and generate 50 percent less carbon dioxide during production than conventional silicon solar cells. Honda will initially market the solar cells to both residential and commercial customers in Japan.
