Spanning wide range of coordinates and conditions at 18 installations across the country
Chiyoda Group has worked on energy-related projects in more than 40 countries including Japan. The solar projects in Japan will benefit from this experience and technology insight. They will also benefit from the real-world power generation and quality advantages of Solar Frontier's CIS modules. Tolerance to shadow, high heat efficiency in southern locations such as Kyushu, and strong low-light performance in northern areas such as Hokkaido make Solar Frontier's modules geographically versatile.
The combined strengths of Chiyoda Group and Solar Frontier are expected to result in significant cost performance and value to the customers of each megasolar project. The two companies expect to work together on further projects going forward, helping to develop Japan's renewable energy future.
