“Panasonic is delighted to have this opportunity to partner with the city of Denver on providing the technology to help meet their sustainability and smart goals, said Joseph Taylor, chairman and CEO of Panasonic Corporation of North America. “
At Panasonic, our approach is never about developing technology for technology’s sake, but instead about how we can enable technology to improve the quality of peoples’ lives.”

The Denver projects announced Tuesday include a solar energy collection and battery storage carport system built with the help of utility company Xcel Energy.
