Sharp Corp. (6753), a Japanese solar panel maker, is considering building a 38-megawatt solar power station in northern Japan.
The plant may be built in Tomakomai city, Hokkaido, Miyuki Nakayama, a Sharp spokeswoman, said by phone today, declining to confirm details included in a June 29 story in the Nikkei newspaper. No decision has been made on the plant, she said.
The station may cost more than 10 billion yen ($100 million) and start running as early as 2015, Nikkei reported, without saying where it got the information.
