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

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- 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. will supply panels and electricity generated at the plant will be sold to Tohoku Electric Power Co., 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.
