JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp (JX) says that a solar power plant with an output of about 700kW has started power transmission in Aichi Prefecture.
JX develops and runs solar power plants by using about 7,000 square meters of idled land owned by the JXTG group. This time, the plant was built on the site of the former “Gamagori Gas Terminal” in Gamagori City, Aichi Prefecture. The total capacity of solar panels installed at the plant is about 700kW while the plant transmits 499kW of electricity to a power grid.
Electricity generated at the plant is sold to Chubu Electric Power Co Inc at a price of ¥24/kWh (excluding tax). JFE Technos Corp, which is an engineering firm affiliated with the JFE group, provided EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) services for the plant.
