OSAKA, Japan - Wednesday, July 23rd 2014

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.
