Kyocera Corporation announced that its subsidiary, Kyocera Solar Corporation, will provide 30 megawatts (MW) of solar modules (approximately 135,000 units) for a utility-scale solar power plant in the northern prefecture of Hokkaido, Japan. The project will be designed and constructed by Yonden Engineering Co., Inc.

The project will be operated by Eurus Energy Group's subsidiary in charge of renewable energy generation business, with plans for construction to start in October of this year and operations to start in March 2014. The solar power plant is expected to generate the equivalent amount of annual power for roughly 9,600 typical households, off-setting roughly 11,000 tons of CO2 per year.

Following the July start of a new feed-in tariff (FIT) in Japan, large-scale solar power plant projects have been popping up across the country, with estimates that the domestic solar market will double compared to the previous fiscal year.
