Solar Frontier to Construct Solar Projects Totaling 9 MW in Kyushu, Japan

Delivering new added-value solar power plants in Japan through integrated service structure - from planning to O&M

Tokyo, June 17, 2015 - Solar Frontier, the world's largest CIS solar energy solutions company, announced today that it has started construction of five solar projects totaling around 9 MW in the Kyushu area of Japan. The projects are all high voltage and are managed by SF Solar Power, a joint investment company formed in 2013 with the Development Bank of Japan. They involve multiple landowners and are due to become operational from around November 2015, with their entire output being sold to Kyushu Electric Power.


"Solar Frontier has firmly established its project development business in Japan and today we are bringing on-stream a new portfolio of high-return, low-risk CIS solar power plants in Kyushu," said Atsuhiko Hirano, CEO of Solar Frontier. "These projects are optimized by leveraging the high-yield of our CIS technology, our manufacturing excellence in Japan, and our integrated project development solutions."

To date, SF Solar Power has implemented a variety of solar power projects throughout Japan, notably an 11.6 MW project at Kansai International Airport, one of the largest solar projects at airports in Asia, and a 4.4 MW project at a plant belonging to the Suntory Group. These new projects in Kyushu are the next step in this series.

Following the completion of the Kyushu projects, Solar Frontier's experienced project development team in Japan will continue to provide added-value services, including O&M (operation and management).
