Solar Power Network completes 1.1 MW solar system at Fuji East Water Treatment Center, its second for Fuji City

Tokyo, JAPAN —Solar Power Network Japan K.K. (SPN), a distributed power generation company based in Tokyo and headquartered in Canada, is pleased to announce the completion of a rooftop solar installation at the Fuji East terminal treatment center in Fuji City, Shizuoka prefecture. The opening ceremony to commemorate the completion was held on December 14.

The project was won by a joint venture created by SPN and JAG Kokusai Energy (JAG) . The installation was designed and developed by SPN, and constructed by JAG. The output of the system is approximately 1.1MW which will meet approximately 24% of the annual electricity demand. The facility is grid connected with contracts under Japan’s Feed-In Tariff system and all the electricity it generates is sold under this scheme to TEPCO.

The PV system will make good use of the sewage plant’s unused rooftop by producing renewable energy. One of the features of this project is to supply emergency power in case of a grid failure during a disaster.

This is the second installation executed by the SPN and JAG joint venture. Fuji West terminal, the largest rooftop solar system in the prefecture, was grid connected in March 2014. The total output of the two solar power systems accounts for approximately 2.3MW (DC).

“SPN is pleased to support Fuji City with its continued commitment to sustainability by utilizing their assets to provide clean, renewable energy.  With the completion of this second site, we are now operating a total of 2.3MW right at the foot of Mount Fuji.  This marks a significant step for SPN in its mission to expand distributed generation in Japan.” said Mr. Peter Goodman, CEO and President of Solar Power Network.

Solar Power Network completes 1st Besia solar installation, approx. 500 kW at Isesaki Ekimae Store

 

Tokyo, JAPAN —Solar Power Network Japan K.K. (SPN), a distributed power generation company based in Tokyo and headquartered in Canada, is pleased to announce the completion of a rooftop solar installation at the Beisia’s Isesaki Ekimae Store in Gunnma prefecture in Japan. Beisia, a super market chain, opened the store on March 13, 2015.

The output of the system is approximately 500 kW, which will meet approximately 47% of the annual electricity demand.

The project was designed, built, and developed by SPN. The facility is grid connected with contracts under Japan’s Feed-In Tariff system and all the electricity they generate is sold under this scheme to TEPCO.

One of the features of this project is to supply emergency power in case of natural disaster. Beisia signed a disaster relief agreement with municipal governments, and the Isesaki store resides with “Isesaki City Information Center” run by Isesaki city office, which will be used as a shelter for disaster refugees in the case of an emergency. The rooftop solar array will generate power during a blackout period caused by a natural disaster.

“SPN is proud to support Beisia in its initiative to support distributed generation.” said Mr. Peter Goodman, CEO and President of Solar Power Network. “One of SPN’s primary goals is to provide clean energy to local communities. SPN is delighted to help Beisia with its disaster relief scheme using renewable energy.”

SPN partnered with Beisia in 2014 to develop solar power systems on 32 Beisia stores which will generate approximately 27 MW. The Isesaki Ekimase Store is the first store completed in this partnership.
