The 10.77-megawatt Shizuoka Project will be powered by 32,640 Canadian Solar-made high-efficiency MaxPower modules, and once connected to the grid, the plant is expected to generate approximately 12,971 megawatt-hours of solar electricity each year, noted a Nov. 28 statement.
Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. will purchase the power under a 20-year feed-in-tariff contract. Canadian Solar expects the project to achieve commercial operation during the fourth quarter of 2018.
The 2.1-megawatt Miyagi Project will use 6,650 of the same modules, and once connected to the grid, the plant will generate approximately 2,400 megawatt-hours of solar electricity each year. The solar electricity from this project will be purchased by Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20-year feed-in-tariff contract, the statement indicated. The project is expected to reach commercial operation in the third quarter of 2018.
“The Miyagi project marks our first project under construction in a region severely impacted by the Great East Japan Earthquake,” commented Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar Inc.
