Entry into the Business of Solar Power Generation

To bolster the stable supply of electricity, while lowering environmental impact, we are building a megasolar project (large-scale solar power generation facility) in the Asa region of Yamaguchi Prefecture. Operation of this facility is slated to around the winter of fiscal 2015.

- Generating capacity : 5MW
- Generated energy per year : Approx. 5.10 GWh Enough to power approx. 1,020 ordinary homes.
- CO2 savings : Approx. 3,710 tons
