Eurus Energy Group, the Japanese clean energy developer has completed two solar power stations in northern Japan. The large-scale projects are situated in the earthquake affected regions of Miyagi and Fukushima.
The two plants will take the company’s total solar capacity in Japan to 84MW.
Canadian Solar has increased its interest in several areas of the Japanese PV market, and has supplied panels to the Miyagi prefecture. Japan’s Kyocera Corporation has supplied modules for the Fukushima-based project.
The power generated from the solar projects will be sold to Tohoku Electric Power Company.
In 2012, a feed-in tariff was introduced to encourage more PV development, and as a result, Japan has established a solid solar pipeline. These two projects are the latest to contribute to Japan’s PV boom and has place the country in the top three solar nations in the world in terms of deployment.
