Features of the plant
- Generates enough electric power to supply 4,400 general households
Nasukarasuyama Solar Power Plant is a solar PV facility built in the city of Nasukarasuyama, Tochigi Prefecture, making effective use of the city's abundant sunshine.
The plant commenced operation in May 2019 as a clean power generation facility utilizing solar energy.
Nasukarasuyama Solar Power Plant covers a vast area around 9 times the size of Tokyo Dome baseball stadium. Its output capacity is approximately 19.2 MW, and it is capable of generating 21.5 million kWh of electrical power a year, equivalent to the power consumption of 4,400 general households.
- Additional retention basins utilizing the terrain
In developing the plant, RENOVA landscaped the area to create two retention basins to the north and south of the site, in order to enable the gentle flow of water through the site to downstream areas.
The flow of water in mountain streams and brooks in the surrounding area is used for rice cultivation, and RENOVA utilized the surrounding environment in developing the plant site.
- Consideration for local safety and disaster readiness
- As a precaution against disasters and to enable stable transmission of electricity, the transmission lines that connect the power plant to the electric utility pylons located 5.5 km north-northeast of the plant itself are buried underground.
