Kyocera Corp. and Tokyo Century Corp. completed construction of a 28 MW utility-scale solar power plant in the town of Taiwa, Kurokawa District, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.
The company has developed this 28 MW solar power plant in collaboration with Tokyo-based Tsuboi Corp. and started operations in late June 2018.
This is the companys first solar power plant in Miyagi Prefecture and its second largest solar power plant following the 29.2MW solar power plant in Tottori Prefecture.
Nearly 104,000 Kyocera solar modules will generate an estimated 33,000 MWh per year enough electricity to power about 11,100 average households and capable of providing power to almost all the local households in the town of Taiwa which is adjacent to Sendai City, the heart of the Tohoku region.
With more companies entering Miyagi Prefectures largest industrial park in this area, it is experiencing urbanization and population growth. The company hopes its solar power plant will be a local symbol of supporting peoples lives and developing the local community while coexisting with the regions rich nature.
Kyocera TCL Solar has constructed solar power plants in 67 sites across Japan including this 28 MW plant, with about 258.1 MW of total output since the company was established in August 2012. Kyocera TCL Solar, Kyocera and Tokyo Century remain committed to promoting renewable energy as well as contributing to environmental protection and the creation of a sustainable society through their solar energy business.
