Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) plans to install eight additional cogeneration gas power generators this Summer as it bids to reduce energy costs and further enhance electricity supply-and-demand efficiency at all TMC plants.

The company believes the measures will enable TMC to meet the demand for businesses in areas serviced by Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc. to reduce electricity use by five percent.
TMC has long been striving to enhance efficient use of energy at its production plants by coordinating the use of energy in all production processes with on-site power generation and other sources of electricity supply.

With the installation of eight new, state-of-the-art high-efficiency cogeneration gas power generators this year, TMC’s on-site power generators (including diesel generators and other kinds) will enable its plants to be approximately 30-per cent self-sufficient in electricity.
