Japan will build 30 solar power island

Japanese companies plan to collaborate solar energy project that will build two floating solar power plants in the reservoir is expected after the completion of the production capacity will reach 2.9 megawatts.


Japanese company plans to eventually build 30 floating solar island

Japan area of ​​about 146,000 square miles (378,000 square kilometers), and the United States Montana area almost. The difference is that the Montana population of about 1 million, and Japan on its territory filled with 128 million people. Japan’s ambitious nuclear energy and want to get rid rely more on clean energy, but it creates a problem for the lack of land.

Then this clean energy projects can be built where? According to Japan’s Kyocera Corporation and Century Tokyo Leasing company said it would carry out clean energy projects in the water. The two companies are collaborating to build two huge solar Island, these two islands will be floating in the two reservoirs (or pond), they are able to produce 2.9 megawatts of total energy. According to a survey said that two floating aggregate 2.9-megawatt solar power plant capacity is sufficient to meet the 483-967 U.S. household’s electricity consumption.

Where a “water-megawatt solar power plant” will be built on the west reservoir level. According to two company announced that it will produce about 1.7 megawatts of energy, which makes it the world’s largest floating solar power stations. A second solar power station will be built on Dongping pond, it will produce about 1.2 megawatts of clean energy. This project is scheduled to start in September, is expected to be completed in April 2015.

“Bloomberg” quoted a spokesman as saying: Kyocera Corporation and Tokyo century this joint venture leasing company aims to eventually able to use 30 floating power plants produce 60 megawatts of solar energy, the average yield per seat power plant capacity of approximately 2 MW. Solar power station on the water, the Danish capital of Copenhagen may step earlier than Japan: very likely soon there will be a giant solar panel “Energy duck” floating in their ports.
