Mega Solar Plants Under Construction in Japan

Construction is under way on two solar power plants in Kawasaki that will cover seven times the area of Tokyo Dome.

The solar plants, being built on a combined 34 hectares in Ukishima and Ogishima, are part of the Mega Solar Power Generation Project carried out jointly by the city of Kawasaki and the Tokyo Electric Power Co.

The plants will use about 100,000 solar panels and are expected to produce about 20 million/kWh of electricity annually, equivalent to the annual usage of about 5,900 households.

Commercial operation of the Ukishima plant is set to begin in August and the Ogishima plant in December this year.
