DuPont is collaborating with the Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. (HK Electric), a major power utility company in Hong Kong, to support the building and operation of the largest thin film photovoltaic (PV) rooftop project in Hong Kong.

With an installation capacity of 550 kilowatt-peak (kWp), the rooftop installation comprises 5,500 thin film PV modules and can generate 620,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) annually. The energy output will help offset about 520 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), 2.9 tons of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and 1.4 tons of nitrogen dioxide (NOx) emissions every year. “We are pleased to collaborate with HK Electric to introduce this cutting-edge, thin film photovoltaic technology for large-scale installation,” said David Chu, the leader of DuPont Apollo, a DuPont wholly-owned subsidiary. “DuPont Apollo and HK Electric share a commitment to sustainable development and protecting the environment through renewable energy.This effort will accelerate applications of photovoltaics in Hong Kong for long-term benefit of the city and its residents.”
 
In addition to supplying thin film PV modules, DuPont Apollo also supported HK Electric in system design and management of the balance-of-system (BOS), which encompasses all components of a PV system, other than the panels, and helps optimize the cost/performance ratio.
