Japan's JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp announced last week it will build a 1.4-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in Saitama prefecture.
The Okabe Mega Solar Power Plant, located in a 15,000-sq-m area in the municipality of Fukaya, is the company's second PV project in the same prefecture.
Scheduled to commence operations in March 2019, the solar facility will sell its output to local utility TEPCO Energy Partner Inc, a unit of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc (TYO:9501).
With this new project, JXTG Nippon now has 44 MW of solar capacity in its portfolio, spread over 18 locations throughout Japan, it noted.
