Japanese renewable energy firm SB Energy Corporation said last week it will install a 13.9 MW photovoltaic (PV) solar power plant in the city of Nasushiobara, in the Tochigi Prefecture of Japan.
The project will be spread over an area of 27 hectares (66,7185 acre) owned by local firm Horai Group. The Softbank Nasushiobara Solar Park, as the project is named, is scheduled to start commercial operations by December 2016.
SB Energy Corporation is the clean energy arm of SoftBank Corporation. The company estimates that the photovoltaic farm will have an output of more than 14,000 MWh per year, which is enough power to meet the annual demand of some 3,895 local homes.
