October 18 (Renewables Now) - Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha Ltd announced on Tuesday it has completed a 2.2-MW photovoltaic (PV) park in Gunma prefecture.

Local firms PASSPORT Co Ltd and Kakoki Plant & Environment Engineering Co Ltd are also partners in the project. Together, they established Akagi Shizen Energy, a joint venture for the solar park, Mitsubishi said.

Located at the foot of Akagi mountain in Maebashi City, the Akagi New Energy Farm Solar Power Station, as it is named, started operation on September 27.

The PV park has an annual output of approximately 2.55 million kWh, enough to meet the demand of 700 households. According to the firm's estimates, this solar facility will be able to offset around 1,380 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.

Mitsubishi will plant trees around the facility as the plant is located in a protective forest area.
