As measures against snow cover, solar panels were installed at an angle and at a high height.

Japan Asia Investment Co Ltd (JAIC) co- developed a solar power plant with an output of about 1.2MW with a partner company and had a ceremony to celebrate the completion of the plant in Yama-gun, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, Nov 28, 2017.

The plant is expected to generate about 1,420,000kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 400 households, per year. As measures against snow cover, the installation angle of solar panel was set at 30°, and the height of the lowest part of solar panel is about 1.8m.

The solar panel, PV inverter and mounting system employed for the plant are products of Jinko Solar Co Ltd, Fuji Electric Co Ltd and Xiamen Grace Solar Technology Co Ltd, respectively.
