2013.08.29 - Construction of Japan's Largest Photovoltaic Power Plant Will Start Shortly
Eurus Energy Group will start the construction of Japan's largest photovoltaic power plant in Rokkasho Village, Aomori Prefecture, with a total AC output capacity of 115MW (DC:148MW).
This plant will use two sites in the Mutsu-Ogawara Industrial Park to install approximately 510,000 panels of photovoltaic modules over 253 ha tract (50 times as large as Tokyo Dome).
The start of the commercial operation of the plant is planned for November 2015. The project is expected to generate a total amount of electric power equal to the power consumption by about 38,000 general households. The CO2 reduction effect of the project is estimated to be about 70,000 tons a year.
Eurus Energy Group is a global developer of renewable energies such as wind power generation and photovoltaic power generation, and is recognized as the largest wind farm developer in Japan. The construction of Eurus Rokkasho Solar Park will boost the Eurus Energy Group to the leading position in Japan in the field of photovoltaic power generation.
Eurus Energy Group will promote its renewable energy business by steadily performing its duties and responsibilities in line with its corporate philosophy of "Helping Preserve the Earth's Healthy Environment through the Promotion and Expansion of Clean Energy."
