Japanese firms Kyocera and Century Tokyo Leasing have completed an 8.5MW PV project on reclaimed land in Japan’s largest lake, Biwa.
The installation, located in Shiga Prefecture, was connected to the grid at the end of October and is now completely operational. It is comprised of 33,000 Kyocera modules and is expected to generate 9,300MWh of power per year.
Along with providing modules, Kyocera designed and constructed the project, and also plans to oversee the site over its lifetime.
