Reading Time: 2 minutes

Juwi Shizen Energy is a joint venture between the Japanese developer and project developer Shizen Energy. It was established in 2013 and has connected the largest project it has ever seen to the grid in Sano City (Japanese Prefecture of Tochigi). This 54-megawatt project is also benefited by the fact that juwi Shizen Energy, a specialist in ground-mounted utility-scale solar parks with difficult terrain topography, is involved. It is located about 100 km north of Tokyo on the former site of a golf course.


In the past, the Japan joint venture has successfully implemented many projects of this type, including the Otaki Village solarfarm on an old ski slope in Nagano Prefecture. This was where the 1988 Winter Olympics took place. The company is currently building the 121-megawatt Pacifico Energy Sanda Mega sunfarm in Hyogo Prefecture. It is located in the Kansai area northwest of Osaka, Honshu Island. The annual output is expected to be approximately 143 million kilowatt-hours. It is expected to be operational in December 2023. It will replace the Sano City solarfarm as the largest single project in the joint venture.
