Renova building 25MW Japan PV

Japanese PV developer Renova and an undisclosed partner have started building a 24.8MW solar plant in Tochigi prefecture, north of Tokyo.

The Tokyo-based company did not disclose the terms of the deal or the PV module supplier.

The project is now being built on 37 hectares of land in the city of Nasushiobara, north of the prefectural capital of Utsunomiya.

Renova expects to start the plant in September 2015. The installation will generate enough electricity to supply 7,000 households per year, it said in an online statement.

The company says it is currently developing 120MW of PV in Japan.

In January, it finished a 14MW ground-mount array in Itako, Ibaraki prefecture.

In February, it started building a 25.4MW solar plant in Kokonoe, Oita prefecture, on the western island of Kyushu.

It also plans to start running a 40MW solar project in July in Futtsu, Chiba prefecture.
