Solar developers in Japan seek to tap demand for mid-sized PV systems - report
Jul 25, 2013 - Japanese solar power firms have shifted their focus on the development of middle-sized photovoltaic (PV) systems, in an effort to meet the growing demand, the Nikkei said today.
At the ongoing PV expo in Tokyo, running between July 24 and July 26, companies are offering mostly installations with capacities of between 10 kW and 1 MW. This trend will make it easier for small-to-midsize companies to step in the mid-scale solar market due to the lower investment needed for the installation of such systems, according to the daily.
The search for megasolar photovoltaic (PV) installations has slowed down, with smaller facilities becoming more widespread as they require less space and are easier to maintain, the Nikkei said.
