Construction to begin on Japan's largest solar and wind power plant located in Tahara City

A groundbreaking ceremony is to be hosted this week in celebration of the start of construction of Japan’s largest solar and wind power plant, located in Tahara City. The major project will be spread over 800,000 sq m and is estimated to generate 67,500 megawatt hours of electricity each year which would be enough to power 90% of the homes in Tahara City with green energy. It is also thought that the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions each year will be approximately 32,000 tonnes.

The solar and wind power plant is part of a collaboration of seven firms who initiated the project last October, with permission granted in September 2012. Design and construction on the plant is 18bn Yen with the majority of the money being sourced through loans from the Development Bank of Japan. The participating companies will maintain a cooperative technological relationship with the Chubu Electric Power Co., and will acquire new technology and knowledge unique to the nation's largest solar energy generation facility.
