Kyocera provides 13 MW of solar modules for large installation in Japan

Kyocera Corp will provide approximately 13 MW of solar modules for the Ohgishima solar power plant Mega Solar System, planned by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) with construction by Hitachi, Ltd.

The solar power plant is scheduled for completion in 2011 and could be one of the largest in Japan.

To promote land-use efficiency, the Kyocera solar modules, covering about 57 acres, will be installed on an artificial island just outside of Tokyo Bay.

Governmental subsidies and a planned feed-in-tariff system are increasing demand for solar energy in Japan – both for residential applications and among public utility companies, which have confirmed plans to build large-scale solar power plants by 2020, Kyocera says.
