First class solar plan for Japanese postal service

According to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Japan Post Co. is planning to install a total 11 MW of solar capacity across the solar rooftops with the aim of selling electricity to utilities in March to benefit from the world’s most generous FIT payment regime, part of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s big-spending policy to kick-start a Japanese recovery.

Thin film CIGS solar panels for the 11 MW order will be supplied by Solar Frontier K.K., a unit of Japanese refiner Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K.
