Sungrow Powers Canadian Solar's 100 MWp Japan PV Project with Its Inverter Solutions
TOKYO, Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Sungrow, the global leading inverter and energy storage system solution 
supplier, announced that the 100 MWp Azuma Kofuji solar project located in 
Fukushima Prefecture (Japan) and equipped with Sungrow's 1500V string inverter 
solutions is operating stably as planned. The project is one of the largest 
solar projects in the country and supports Japan's 2050 carbon neutrality 

The project is owned, managed and operated by Canadian Solar, and the energy 
generated is being purchased by the Tohoku Electric Power Company at the rate 
of JPY36 (U$0.26) per kWh under Japan's feed-in-tariff (FIT) scheme for a 
period over 18 years.

The solar plant is located on a site of approximately 460 acres in Fukushima 
City, Fukushima Prefecture. Most of the land was converted from abandoned 
agricultural land following the application of the newly enacted Japanese 
legislation to promote renewables. Annual clean power output is expected to be 
106,800 MWh, equivalent to eliminating 50,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide 
emissions per year, and powering approximately 31,000 households.

Sungrow supplied the 1500V string inverters and the medium-voltage station to 
the landmark project. The solution is tailored for Japanese ultra-high-voltage 
installations, featuring easy installation, smart operation and maintenance, 
and high efficiency. Equipped with multiple MPPTs, the solution guarantees a 
high yield in hilly terrains such as Mount Azuma-Kofuji. In addition, the 
solution can operate stably even when the temperature is as low as minus 25 
degrees Celsius, giving the system added durability on sites prone to frozen 

Michael Zhang, Country Manager of Sungrow Japan, said: "We are proud to support 
one of the largest of this kind in Japan. The project will not only accelerate 
the clean energy transition, but also reinvigorate the local economy that was 
heavily hit by the Tohoku earthquake. As the world's most bankable 
( inverter brand, Sungrow is 
committed to providing clean power for all and we look forward to prosperous 
yields of the project."

Sungrow has been pioneering in the Japanese market for more than nine years. 
The Company is well equipped with a professional local team offering responsive 
sales, technical support, and after-sale services. Notably, the Company 
prepares to roll out its latest PV and energy storage product portfolio at 
Japan's World Smart Energy Week (Sungrow Booth 48-6) on March 15-17.
