Solar power group Canadian Solar completed construction and grid connection of three of its solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants in Japan, with a total of about 5.2 MWp, including the 2.2 MWp Tsukuba Stones Solar Power Plant in Kasama City, Ibaraki Prefecture, the 2 MWp Tomigaoka Solar Power Plant in Isa City, Kagoshima Prefecture, and the 1 MWp Isa City Solar Power Plant in Isa City, Kagoshima Prefecture.

The 2.2 MWp Tsukuba Stones Solar Power Plant was connected to the grid on June 26, 2015. Powered by 8,448 Canadian Solar CS6P-260P modules, it will generate about 2,474 MWh of solar power every year and the electricity generated from this project will be purchased by Tokyo Electric Power Co., Ltd. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of $0.33 per kWh.

The 2 MWp Tomigaoka Solar Power Plant was connected to the grid on June 29, 2015.  Powered by 7,920 Canadian Solar CS6P-255P modules, it will generate about 2,415 MWh of solar power every year and the electricity generated from the project will be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of $0.30 per kWh.

The 1 MWp Isa City Solar Power Plant was connected to the grid on June 9, 2015. Powered by 3,654 Canadian Solar CS6P-255P modules, it will generate about 1,175 MWh of solar power every year and the electricity generated from the project will be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of $0.30 per kWh.

Founded in 2001 in Canada, Canadian Solar is a manufacturer of solar photovoltaic modules and a provider of solar energy solutions. In the past 14 years, Canadian Solar has successfully deployed over 10 GW of solar modules in over 70 countries around the world.
