TOKYO -- Japanese companies aim to install solar panels on rooftops in Southeast Asia, anticipating demand for stable green energy sources in a region that has long relied heavily on fossil fuels.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings will set up solar panels generating about 3,800 kilowatts at an industrial park of a Thai company that makes hard-disk drives. The project will be conducted by TEPCO's joint venture with local renewable energy provider Constant Energy.
