AUO announced the completion of its Lungke solar power plant on March 23rd 2017. The Lungke solar power plant was developed, constructed, and connected to the grid within one year. PV modules of 9.87MW were installed on the rooftop of the two LCD factories, with an area of 8.5 hectares. They can generate 30,000kWh of electricity everyday, enough to power 3,000 households.
AUO has a cumulative installation of 66MW in Taiwan by 2016. Michael Tsai, President of AUO, indicated that AUO has the best performance in utility-scale power plants in Taiwan. The company is expecting to complete the construction of 21MW residential and ground-mounted solar power plants before late-2017.
