Pacifico Energy has commenced construction on two Japanese solar power generation plants

The two projects detail the building of a 112 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Wake, Okayama Prefecture (the Bizen plant) and a 72 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture (the Yumesaki plant).

The Bizen plant will be constructed on the site of a golf course in Wake-gun, Okayama Prefecture. Operations are expected to start in Spring of 2020. Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 132 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, contributing to an annual reduction of approximately 90,000 tons of CO2 emissions. Chugoku Electric Power Co., Inc. will purchase all electricity generated by the plant, pursuant to the Act on Special Measures Concerning Procurement of Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources by Electric Utilities.

The Bizen and Yumesaki plants mark the second and third projects for Pacifico Energy to commence construction this year.

Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 84 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, contributing to an annual reduction of approximately 42,000 tons of CO2 emissions. Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc. will purchase all electricity generated by the plant, pursuant to the Act on Special Measures Concerning Procurement of Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources by Electric Utilities.

Pacifico Energy is currently constructing several solar power plants, including a 257 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Okayama (construction commenced in April 2017), a 42 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Fukushima (construction commenced in September 2017), a 62 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Aichi (construction commenced in October 2017) and a 55 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Gifu (construction commenced in February 2018).
