#Tech Marubeni Starts Up 49MW Solar Plant on Reclaimed Land

An aerial photo of "Kisosaki Reclaimed Land Mega Solar," which was built by Kisosaki Mega Solar Marubeni Corp announced Dec 16, 2014, that Kisosaki Mega Solar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marubeni, has completed the construction of a 49MW solar power plant and started to sell electricity generated at the plant. The plant was built on reclaimed land that straddles the border between Mie and Aichi prefectures. The solar power plant, "Kisosaki Reclaimed Land Mega Solar," generates 52,000,000kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 14,500 households, per year. Based on the FIT (feed-in tariff) scheme, the plant will continue to sell electricity for about 20 years (until December 2034).
