Pacifico Energy K.K. announced the commencement of construction on Japan's largest solar power generation plant, the 257.7 MW (DC) Sakuto Mega Solar Power Plant in Mimasaka, Okayama.

The plant will be constructed on land in Mimasaka City, Okayama Prefecture that was previously the proposed site of the Sakuto St. Valentine Resort and the former site of the Peninsula Golf Club's Yunogo Course (approx. 400ha). Operations are expected to start in September 2019, representing a 30 month construction period. Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 290 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, representing an annual reduction of approximately 200,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Chugoku Electric Power Company (CEPCO) will purchase all electricity generated by the plant.

Pacifico Energy has already completed construction of two other solar power plants in Okayama (in Kumenan and Mimasaka), which are both now in commercial operation, so the Sakuto Mega Solar Power Plant will be the third project for Pacifico Energy in Okayama. Leveraging know-how and experience gained through developing, constructing, and operating utility scale solar power plants all over the world, we shall continue constructing power plants that contribute to the development of regional communities in an environmentally friendly way.
