Orix Corp announced Aug 1, 2016, that it has rented the roof of a large-scale physical distribution facility in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan, and started a solar power generation business.

The output of the power plant is 2.75MW, which the company claims is larger than any other solar power plant installed on the roof of a single physical distribution facility in Japan.

The physical distribution facility was co-developed by Itochu Corp and Singapore-based Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd. It is a four-story building for multiple tenants and has truck berths and rampways.
