June 25 (Solar) – Japanese company Smart Solar Corp announced last week it has completed a 2.46-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Kumamoto prefecture, Japan.
The Kumamoto Yamaga Solar Park A, as its is named, is expected to produce 2.73 million kWh per year, enough to meet the annual electricity consumption of some 800 households.
Comprised of 8,082 solar panels, Solar Park A should be able to offset 1,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually. The plant is part of a four-plant, 53-MW solar complex — Yamaga A, B, C and D — that has been under construction for the past three and a half years, Smart Solar noted.
Currently, the firm has 30 mega solar power stations all over the country, with a combined capacity of over 201 MW.
