New Sunshine Program
New Sunshine Program aims to develop the innovative technologies that could support the sustainable economical growth while solving energy and environmental issues.

Japan?s New Sunshine Program, established in 1992, sets renewable energy targets and leads to a net-metering law that requires utilities to purchase excess PV power. In 1994, Japan launched a Solar Roofs program to promote PV through low-interest loans, a comprehensive education and awareness program, and rebates for grid-connected residential systems in return for data about systems operations and output.
