ISE GROUP STARTS UP NANAO SOLAR POWER PLANT IN JAPAN
ISE Group, Total and SunPower have started up a 27-megawatt-peak photovoltaic power plant in Nanao on Japan’s Honshu Island. Completed one year after the beginning of construction, the plant will generate clean and reliable electricity to serve thousands Japanese households on the island. The ground-mounted solar power plant has been designed to fully meet the stringent Japanese earthquake-resistant building standards. Constructed on 25 hectares of land owned by ISE Group, the facility is now entirely connected to the electricity distribution grid and began supplying power through more than 80,000 high-efficiency SunPower solar panels.
The Nanao plant is jointly owned by ISE Group, which holds 50 percent interest, with Total and SunPower each holding a 25 percent interest. (Source and image: Total)
