The system was built atop the Prologis Park Chiba 1 logistics facility and it is Japan Benex's 16th roof-rented photovoltaic (PV) array.

Prologis Park Chiba 1 becomes part of Japan's Nippon Prologis REIT Inc (TYO:3283), the local subsidiary of California-based property investment trust Prologis Inc (NYSE: PLD).

With 6,786 solar modules, the PV system has an estimated yearly power output of some 3.86 million kWh, enough to fulfill the need of around 1,300 local houses.

Prologis Park Chiba 1 is now the biggest of its kind for Japan Benex, exceeding the about 3-MW Benex Inzai Solar Port, the company said.

With the commissioning of this new solar array, Japan Benex now has 33 operational power plants with an integrated capacity of about 34 MW. Of these, 25 MW are roof-rented PV arrays.
