Etrion completes 9.5 MW solar power project in Japan

The final two sites of the project, built by Hitachi High-Technologies and totalling 4.2 MW, will start generating revenues immediately. Aomori is a 9.5 MW utility-scale solar PV project with four sites in the Aomori prefecture of Japan.  Each site has a twenty-year power purchase agreement with the Tohoku Electric Power utility and will receive ¥36 per kilowatt-hour produced (approximately $0.35 per kWh). The project is expected to generate approximately 10.7 GWh of solar electricity.

“We continue to make significant progress in Japan, and we are very happy to increase our installed capacity ahead of time and below budget” said Marco A. Northland, Etrion’s Chief Executive Officer. “I congratulate every stakeholder in the Aomori project for performing brilliantly. With Aomori, fully connected, we now have about 43 MW operational, 13 MW under construction and over 250 MW in different stages of development. We will continue to provide updates as we reach new milestones in this very exciting market.”

Etrion Corporation develops, builds, owns and operates utility-scale solar power generation plants and owns 114 MW of installed solar capacity in Chile and Japan. It currently has 13 MW of solar projects under construction in Japan and is also actively developing additional greenfield solar power projects in the country.
