ISE Group (Tokyo, Japan), Total (Paris; France) and SunPower Corp. (San Jose, CA, U.S.) have started up a 27 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Nanao on Japan’s Honshu Island.

Completed one year after the beginning of construction, the PV plant will generate clean and reliable electricity to serve thousands of Japanese households on the island.

The Nanao PV plant is jointly owned by ISE Group, which holds a 50 percent interest, with Total and SunPower each holding a 25 percent interest

 

“Total Solar is proud of the start-up of its first photovoltaic power plant in Japan. This project, launched in partnership with Japanese ISE Group and Total’s affiliate SunPower, is part of our strategy to develop new projects in the fast growing solar market,”said Julien Pouget, Senior Vice-President Renewables at Total.

Constructed on 25 hectares of land owned by ISE Group, the PV facility is now entirely connected to the electricity distribution grid and has begun supplying solar power through more than 80,000 high-efficiency SunPower PV panels.
