Japan's Benex switches on 2-MW PV plant in Saitama

Asia Pacific

Japan Benex Corporation announced on Tuesday it has put into operation a 2.04-MW photovoltaic plant in Saitama prefecture.

Located in Kawagoe city, Benex Kawagoe Solar Port, as it is named, was implemented on the rooftop of local logistics facility Logiport Kawagoe.

With solar modules supplied by Chinese company JA Solar Holdings Co Ltd, the solar system is expected to generate more than 2.2 million kWh per year, enough to meet the annual demand of 610 local homes.

This PV array is also the first to use the new 500-kW power conditioning system from Japanese company Meidensha Corp. Both firms work together in the development of a dedicated outdoor storage board for storing the PCS.

The storage unit is designed to reduce power consumption and running cost by adopting a fan instead of air conditioning, Benex said in its press release.

In all, the company has 19 PV facilities in Japan with an operational capacity of 13.8 MW, it noted.
