Softbank Aims to Be Japan’s Biggest Wind Producer With New Plant

Softbank Corp., Japan’s third-biggest mobile phone company, plans to build a wind farm in the nation’s north that could make it the country’s largest producer of wind power.

Softbank has plans for a 500-turbine facility that would produce as much as 1 gigawatt of power at a site on the island of Hokkaido, Kenichi Yuasa, a spokesman for the Tokyo-based company, said today in an e-mail.

The company is discussing the plan with local officials and measuring how much output is needed by the surrounding population, Yuasa said.

Eurus Energy Holdings Corp., controlled by Nagoya-based Toyota Tsusho Corp, is currently Japan’s biggest wind producer with 698 megawatts of wind and solar power capacity in Japan and other Asian countries.
