Tokyo-based developer Pacifico Energy has started construction on two Japanese solar projects, with one (112MW) located in Wake-gun, Okayama Prefecture and the other (72MW) in Himeji-city, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan.

The 112MW Bizen plant will be constructed on the site of a golf course in Wake-gun. Operations are expected to start in Spring of 2020. Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 132 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually. Chugoku Electric Power Co will purchase all electricity generated by the plant.

The 72MW Yumesaki plant will also be constructed on the site of a golf course in Himeji. Operations are expected to start in the autumn of 2020. Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 84 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually. Kansai Electric Power Co will purchase all electricity generated by the plant.

Pacifico Energy has already completed construction of two solar power plants in Okayama (in Kumenan and Mimasaka), one solar power plant in Osaki, Miyagi, and one solar power plant in Miyazaki totaling 227.4MW, which are all now in commercial operation.

The firm is currently constructing several other solar power plants, including a 257MW project in Okayama, a 42MW project in Fukushima, a 62MW project in Aichi, and a 55MW project in Gifu.
