Yamaha Adds Solar at Georgia Facility

Yamaha Motor Corporation will install solar arrays at the company’s southeastern headquarters in Kennesaw, Ga. and Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America (YMMC) in Newnan, Ga. this summer. 

The initiative supports Yamaha’s goal to reduce emissions produced as a direct result of business activities and achieve carbon neutrality within its manufacturing operations and facilities by 2035. 

Yamaha expects solar installations to be completed by the end of 2024.

Yamaha will work with VeloSolar in Atlanta, Ga., on installation of the solar array panels. 

“The installation of these solar panels represents a substantial step forward in Yamaha’s quest to substantially reduce carbon emissions. We anticipate the solar array in Kennesaw will supply about 60 percent of the facilities’ electricity needs. At the Newnan facility, we anticipate avoiding roughly 13,600 tons of carbon dioxide over the life of the array – that’s equivalent to eliminating approximately 14,930,000 pounds of coal emissions. These panels are in addition to the already existing solar arrays at YMMC,” said Mike Chrzanowski, President and CEO, Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA in a statement. “These projects are only a part of Yamaha’s plan to decarbonize operations globally, and the company will continue to identify more emission-reducing opportunities as we move toward 2035.”
