JRE commissions 23.1-MW solar park in Ibaraki


September 5 (Solar) – Japan Renewable Energy (JRE) last week announced the start of commercial operations at a 23.1-MW solar park in Japan’s Ibaraki prefecture.

The Tsuchiura solar farm, located in Tsuchiura City, is expected to generate 28.8 million kWh of electricity per year. According to the Japanese firm, the output of the plant will be enough to meet the power consumption of about 8,000 households and mitigate around 14,400 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

Construction of the photovoltaic (PV) park was initiated in February 2017. It will be operated by GK JRE Tsuchiura, a unit of JRE.

In June, JRE started building a 6-MW solar plant in Inashiki city, Ibaraki, which is expected to be up and running in March next year. Its entire output will be sold to local utility TEPCO Energy Partner Inc, a unit of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc (TYO:9501).
