First Solar completes Japanese project


U.S. solar manufacturer First Solar today announced an initial foray into the lucrative Japanese solar market with the completion of a 1.3 MW solar plant at Kitakyushu-shi.

The project, which created 65 construction jobs at its peak, will generate 1.4 GWh per year to be sold to the Kyushu Electric Power Company, according to a First Solar press release announcing completion of the scheme today.

The First Solar-owned plant used the company's FS Series 3 Black PV modules and was constructed by Obayashi Corp and Yaskawa Corp with Nippon Sheet Glass supplying the glass for the modules.
