Work to begin on Japan’s largest PV plant

Eurus Energy is set to begin construction of Japan’s largest solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to date.

The renewable energy developer will build the 115 MW Eurus Rokkasho Solar Park across two sites at Aomori prefecture in northern Japan.

The park will utilise 510,000 panels of single-crystal silicon photovoltaic cells, manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric and SunPower and will generate enough electricity to power 38,000 average households a year, reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by around 70,000 tonnes.

The plant is expected to cost around $500m, according to reports by Bloomberg with a completion date set for November 2015.
