Eurus Energy Plans 14-Megawatt Solar Plant on Japan Golf Course

Eurus Energy Holdings Corp., a Japanese developer of clean-energy projects, will build a 14-megawatt solar-power plant in northern Japan.

The facility, to be built on a former golf course straddling the Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, is expected to start operations in March 2015, the Tokyo-based company said in a statement today.

Canadian Solar Inc. (CSIQ) will supply panels and electricity generated at the plant will be sold to Tohoku Electric Power Co. (9506), according to the statement.

Eurus also plans a 33.5-megawatt solar-power plant in the Hyogo prefecture in western Japan, the company said in a statement last week. It will start running in July 2015.
