Ichigo Inc built a solar power plant with an output of about 1.48MW in Itoshima City, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, and started power generation at the plant Jan 7, 2019.

On about 58,743m2 of land that was formerly used as a hog farm, 4,720 solar panels were installed. The plant is expected to generate about 1,647,000kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 450 households, per year.

The solar panel and PV inverter employed for the plant are products of JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd and Sungrow Power Supply Co Ltd, respectively.
