Kansai Electric Power Co. Inc. and Sharp Corp. are collaborating on the Sakai City Waterfront Mega Solar Power Generation Plan in Osaka Prefecture, Japan, which will have a combined output of approximately 28 MW.
Under the plan, mega solar power generation is scheduled for two locations: Sakai No. 7-3 District Solar Power Generation Plant, with an output of approximately 10 MW, and Sakai Manufacturing Complex Solar Power Generation Facilities, with a planned output of about 9 MW to start and a maximum of 18 MW.
The companies say they are currently working out the details of the running of these solar power facilities. Sharp intends to use thin-film silicon solar modules, which will be produced at the solar cell plant that is scheduled to go online in March 2010. Kansai Electric will build and operate the plants as part of its business.
