May 18 (Renewables Now) - Japanese tech company Taiyo Holdings Co Ltd (TYO:4626) has inaugurated its 2.3-MW floating solar photovoltaic farm in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan, it announced earlier this week.
The Chuo Ike Minakami plant was installed by Taiyo’s subsidiary Taiyo Green Energy Corp, the company said in the press release. It is the 14th floating solar farm for Taiyo's renewable energy business.
The company now has solar farms floating on water surfaces in seven prefectures -- Saitama, Hyogo, Nara, Mie, Gifu, Aichi and Kagawa.
Together, they generate more power than needed by the group's electronics business in Japan, Taiyo noted.
