Juwi Shizen turns on Japan PV

Juwi Shizen Energy has commissioned two PV arrays in southern Japan with a combined capacity of 2.1MW.

The 1MW plant in Yamaguchi prefecture, near the city Gongen, was built on a former water storage reservoir.

“The site had been abandoned for more than 20 years and the owners were looking for a new and useful way to make use of the land,” says Juwi Shizen managing director Juan Mas Valor.

It took only three months to build the Yamaguchi plant and a 1.1MW array in Wakayama prefecture on a forestry co-operative site.

Juwi Shizen Energy is a joint-venture between German developer Juwi and Japan's Shizen Energy.
