Solar Frontier K.K. to Supply CIS Modules for 26MW Project in North Carolina

Solar Frontier K.K. has announced that it will supply its solar module technology, CIS, for a 26MW project located near Raleigh, North Carolina, US. Solar Frontier signed the module supply agreement with a California-based solar equipment supplier and initiated the first of a series of shipments in late August 2015. The project will be constructed by Vaughn Industries, a highly skilled team of full service electrical contractor specialists (including power transmission and distribution, substation and renewable energy projects).

Solar Frontier Starts Construction of Five Solar Projects in Kyushu, Japan

Solar Frontier K.K. has started construction of five solar projects totaling around 9MW in Kyushu, Japan. The projects are all high voltage and are managed by SF Solar Power, a joint investment company formed in 2013 with the Development Bank of Japan. They involve multiple landowners and are due to become operational from around November 2015, with their entire output being sold to Kyushu Electric Power. To date, SF Solar Power has implemented a variety of solar power projects throughout Japan, notably an 11.6 MW project at Kansai International Airport, and a 4.4 MW project at a plant belonging to the Suntory Group. These new projects in Kyushu are the next step in this series. Following the completion of the Kyushu projects, Solar Frontier's experienced project development team in Japan will continue to provide added-value services, including O&M (operation and management).
