Japanese engineering firm Kyowa Exeo Corp announced Friday it has complete the construction of a 2.3-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in the Chugoku region, Shimane Prefecture.
The Ekushio Matsue Solar Farm, as it is named, was built on a 25,281 sq m in Matsue city and started selling its electricity on November 2, according to the company's press release.
With about 8,784 pieces of silicon solar modules, the PV plant can generate about 2.54 million kWh per year, equivalent to the demand of some 450 local homes.
Kyowa Exeo has now ten operational solar power plants and one more project in Chugoku -- a 1.25-MW PV plant in Yamaguchi Prefecture.
