Sharp, KEPCO planning on Japan’s largest solar power plant

February 15, 2008 (Power Engineering) – Sharp and Kansai Electric Power Co. (KEPCO) are planning to jointly build Japan’s biggest solar power generation plant in Sakai, Osaka Prefecture. The new plant will have a total electricity generation capacity of 10 MW, informed sources said. For the plant, Sharp and Kansai Electric are planning to lease a 20-hectare site within the prefecture’s 280-hectare industrial waste disposal site in Sakai. The two companies aim to complete construction around autumn 2009.

Sharp will install its solar power generation panels. Kansai Electric will purchase electricity generated at the plant. A 5 MW facility in Sharp’s Kameyama Plant in Mie Prefecture, western Japan, is currently Japan’s largest solar power generation plant.
