Solar Frontier announced today that it has started construction of five solar projects totaling around 9MW in the Kyushu area of Japan. The projects are managed by SF Solar Power. They involve multiple landowners and are due to become operational from around November 2015, with their entire output being sold to Kyushu Electric Power.
"Solar Frontier has firmly established its project development business in Japan and today we are bringing on-stream a new portfolio of high-return, low-risk CIS solar power plants in Kyushu," said Atsuhiko Hirano, CEO of Solar Frontier. "These projects are optimized by leveraging the high-yield of our CIS technology, our manufacturing excellence in Japan, and our integrated project development solutions."
Following the completion of the Kyushu projects, Solar Frontier's experienced project development team in Japan will continue to provide added-value services, including O&M (operation and management).
