KYOCERA supplies modules to “Kizuna” solar park in Tsunami-hit prefecture in Japan

By Editor


Kyocera announced it has supplied 3.6 megawatts (MW) of multicrystalline silicon solar modules for the Okumatsushima “Kizuna” Solar Park in Higashi-Matsushima City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.

The utility-scale solar power plant, owned and operated by Mitsui & Co., went live in August.

Higashi-Matsushima City is one of the many places damaged by the tsunami of March 2011. The Kizuna Solar Park was built as part of the reconstruction efforts taking place in the region.

Kyocera, with more than 38 years of experience in solar energy industry, was selected to supply modules for this project based on its reputation for high-quality and high-reliability solar modules.


By supplying solar modules for Kizuna Solar Park, Kyocera aims to help further promote the use of renewable energy and also to contribute to the betterment of the environment and society.

Kyocera to begin operation of 2.4 MW solar power plant in Japan

Earlier in July, Kyocera  announced that Kyocera TCL Solar, its joint venture with Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation, has begun operation of a 2.4 megawatt (MW) solar power plant in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan.

The Takamatsu Ikushima Mega Solar Plant is the first to be launched under the company’s business plan to operate up to 35 small- to mid-size utility-scale solar power plants in Japan.

The launch coincides with the first anniversary of Japan’s restructured feed-in-tariff (FIT) for solar power generation, which has stimulated such demand for industrial-use solar power generating systems that Japan is now poised to surpass Germany this year as the world’s largest solar market.
