Cosmo Oil, Showa Shell to Form Venture to Operate Solar Plants
The companies plan to construct eight solar stations with a total capacity of 26 megawatts, they said in a statement today. The sites for the power plants will mostly be former Cosmo Oil depots.
Solar Frontier K.K., a unit of Showa Shell, will provide solar panels for the projects, according to the statement.
Showa Shell and DBJ announced on Jan. 10 that they will set up a venture to finance utility-scale solar power plants in Japan.
