 KAWASAKI, Japan - Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation has won an order to supply 6MW solar panels from Eight Solar Company Limited, Thailand's solar power system provider. Eight Solar will install the systems on the roofs of six stores in the "Home Pro" chain of home improvement centers, and they will start to deliver clean, low-carbon electricity in January 2018.

Toshiba's solar power products are recognized for their high quality and long-term reliability, factors that contributed to winning the order.
