Toshiba, Hitachi Win Solar Power Generation Contracts

Nov. 30, 2009
Toshiba will generate enough electricity to supply 2,000 households, while Hitachi will provide for 3,800 households.

Electronics makers Toshiba and Hitachi said on Nov. 30 they had won contracts to develop large solar power generation projects for Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO).

Toshiba said it would install a solar power system with about seven megawatt capacity in the Ukishima Solar Power Plant in Kawasaki, southwest of Tokyo.

The plant is scheduled to start operation by March 2012 to generate enough electricity to supply 2,000 households, Toshiba said.

Hitachi separately said it had won a similar contract with TEPCO, the largest utility firm in Asia, to build a solar power generation system with a 13 megawatt capacity, also in Kawasaki.

The plant will generate electricity for 3,800 households by March 2012.
