Japan goes big on floating solar

A reservoir in Japan is home to the country’s largest floating solar energy plant.

The 13.7 megawatt (MW) facility located on Yamakura Dam in Chiba Prefecture will generate enough power annually to power around 5000 households.

Kyocera TCL Solar –  a collaborative venture between Japanese multinational Kyocera and Tokyo Century  – took operational control of the record-breaking plant this month.

It is the latest clean energy development led by Kyocera. The corporation is also behind another groundbreaking solar project in Japan, one that covers an area the size of Monaco and will generate clean electricity for over 30,000 homes.
