First Solar Starts Construction of Solar Power Plant in Kitakyushu-shi, Japan #greenbuilding

“This project illustrates First Solar’s capability to develop and build solar power plants in Japan,” said Joseph Kishkill, First Solar’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We are honored to begin our long-term strategic investment in Japan with the Kitakyushu-shi project.” Over 100 million First Solar modules – which integrate advanced Japanese technology – have been installed throughout the world. Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd. (NSG Group), headquartered in Tokyo and one of the world’s leading manufacturers of glass, supplies the advanced technology glass with a proprietary electrical film tuned to First Solar’s CdTe thin-film modules. First Solar holds 100 percent equity in the project. Obayashi Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo and Yaskawa Electric Corporation, headquartered in Kitakyushu – both major global construction contractors – will construct the project.
