September 1 (SeeNews) - Japanese company Lixil Corp, part of Japanese builder JS Group Corp (TYO:5938), announced today it is switching on a 4.87-MW solar plant in the prefecture of Kyoto.
Named Lixil Ayabe Solar Power, the facility is located at the company's former Ayabe Plant, Ayabe city, and will be fully operational in September 2015. Construction began in November 2014 and finished in August.
The facility has an expected power generation of some 4,600 MWh per year, enough to supply about 900 households. The output will be sold to Kansai Electric Power Co Inc (TYO:9503).
