Nippon Paper, Mitsubishi to Build 21MW Solar Plant in Japan

Nippon Paper Industries Co. and Mitsubishi Corp., a Japanese trading company, will build a 21-megawatt solar power station in western Japan.

The companies set up a joint venture in March and will begin construction of the plant in Tokushima prefecture this fall, Nippon Paper said in a statement today.

The plant, to be built at a site owned by the paper company, is expected to start selling electricity to Shikoku Electric Power Co. in the latter half of 2014, according to the statement.
