Equis Energy has brought online and started power sales at a 13.8-MW solar park in Japan’s Aomori prefecture, the Singapore-based renewable energy producer said on Monday.
The so-called Noheji plant is situated in the town with the same name. According to the developer's calculations, it is expected to have an annual electricity output of 33,925 MWh that will meet the demand of 5,729 homes and help offset around 16,652 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.
Equis Energy is engaged in the development, design, management and investment of renewable energy schemes. The Singaporean firm owns 4.9 GW of renewable energy assets in the Asia-Pacific region and also has an additional 6.2 GW of capacity under development. In Japan alone, Equis Energy owns 0.9 GW of projects plus some 1.3 GW of capacity in the development stages.
In the Aomori area, the capacity of Equis Energy's operational and under-construction solar plants exceeds 170 MW, said representative director Adam Ballin.
