Kyocera Solar Corporation, a supplier of solar panels, will provide 30 MW of the solar panels required for a solar power plant under construction in Hokkaido, Japan. There will be 135,000 solar panels at the plant, which will be constructed by Yonden Engineering Co., Inc.

This plant is expected to generate enough electricity to power 9,600 households and offset approximately 11,000 tons of CO2 annually.

Construction is slated to start this October, and it is expected to commence operation in March of 2014.

Good news for a country struggling to ween itself off of nuclear and fossil fuel energy.
