Sparx Green Energy and Technology — a unit of Tokyo-based asset manager Sparx — has switched on a 12.8 MW solar project in eastern Japan. It claims that the installation — which stretches roughly 10 kilometres between Shiroi and Inzai, Chiba prefecture — is the “longest” PV project in Japan.
The energy regulator of the Belgian French-speaking region has announced the grid-fee will come into force in 2020, and not in 2019 as previously planned. PV systems operators are expected to pay an annual fee ranging from €330 to €560.
The Solar Energy Corporation of India has scrapped large amounts of solar+storage tenders at both the Pavagada and Kadapa solar parks as it seeks to renegotiate with states for lower tariffs.
The Turkish company has signed a MoU with the Palestinian utility JDECO for the construction of an unspecified number of solar plants in the Middle Eastern region.
The huge plant would consist of a 707 MW PV section and a 300 MW unit and would be located in the northern region of Tarapacá.
Including this operation, the installed PV capacity of the power and gas distributor in the archipelago has reached 20 MW.
