Touching yet another milestone Kyocera TCL Solar LLC has completed the construction of 29.2 MW of utility-scale solar power plant situated in Yonago City, Tottori Prefecture, Japan.  Kyocera Corporation (Kyocera) and Tokyo Century Corporation announced the development on Wednesday.

The land on which the plant has been constructed was originally meant for gulf course, but the plan was later abandoned. The 1.2 Kms of land was later turned into solar plant where modules were installed in order to generate solar power.

To commemorate the completion of Kyocera TCL Solar’s largest power plant a function was organized on last month.

Around 108,504 are installed in the plant that will generate enough electricity to power approximately 12,000 typical households. At an estimate around 36,080 megawatt hours (MW) will be generated per year.

A local utility, The Chugoku Electric Power Co. Inc. will buy all the electricity generated from the plant.

Since Tottori Prefecture has a Japan Sea coastal climate with heavy snow and short hours of sunlight during the winter months, it is not always considered to be a suitable area for constructing a solar power plant.

However, the company overcame such difficulties by optimising installation methods to allow for weather conditions of the area and ensure sufficient power generation capacity.

Kyocera TCL Solar has constructed 63 solar power plants across Japan including this 29.2 MW plant with approximately 215 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.
