Three companies including Kyocera Corp announced that they have built solar power plants with a total output of about 5MW and had a ceremony to celebrate the completion of them Sept 26, 2017.

The power producer of the plants is a special purpose company (SPC) invested in by Kyocera, Kaneshita Construction Co Ltd and Omron Field Engineering Co Ltd (OFE). Six power plants were built in Miyazu City, Kyoto Prefecture, with a total solar panel output of 4.948MW.

The six plants are expected to generate 5,348MWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 1,100 households, per year. All the electricity generated at the plants is sold to The Kansan Electric Power Co Inc at a price of ¥24/kWh.
