Called Sonnedix Motegi, the photovoltaic or pv (PV) farm will certainly have the ability to produce 22,230 MWh of tidy energy in its first complete year of procedure, enough to satisfy the need of over 5,000 local homes.

Located in Tochigi prefecture, Motegi will include 540 Wp monocrystalline bifacial modules and 3.2 MW main inverters. Sonnedix anticipates the PV plant to be up and running by the 3rd quarter of 2023.

The solar project's outcome will be marketed under an 18-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The offtaker's name was not revealed.

Motegi was obtained in December 2021 from Trina Solar Japan Energy, an unit of China's Trina Solar Co Ltd (SHA:688599).

Today, Sonnedix has greater than 5 GW of complete capacity, with 500 MW taken care of by its Japanese subsidiary. An additional 82 MW is prepared to be finished this year alone.
