Suntech Power Japan Corp announced Oct 3, 2017, that it has completed a solar power plant with an output of about 2.74MW in Saga Prefecture, Japan.

The plant is expected to generate about 3,302,000kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 690 households, in the first year. Electricity generated at the plant is sold to Kyushu Electric Power Co Inc at a price of ¥40/kWh (excluding tax).

On about 30,000m2 of land rented from Saga City, 8,700 polycrystalline silicon solar panels (output: 315W each) manufactured by Suntech Power Japan were set up.
