Green infrastructure company Japan Asia Group Ltd (TYO:3751), or JAG, said Thursday it has completed a 612-kW solar array in Japan's Hokkaido island.
The system is expected to produce enough electricity to meet the annual power demand of 114 local homes. The photovoltaic (PV) array was developed by JAG's subsidiary Kokusai Kyogo Co Ltda.
Located in the city of Takigawa, the plant spreads over an area of 16,000 sq m (172,160 sq ft). Its solar panels were supplied by Canadian Solar Japan, local subsidiary of Canadian Solar Inc (NASDAQ:CSIQ).
Japanese firm NEC Networks & System Integration Corporation was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work. The system output will be sold to local utility Hokkaido Electric Power Company starting next month, noted the company.
Earlier this month, JAG also completed a 832-kW solar array in Shiga prefecture.
