Grid Congestion for Renewable Energy May Expand to South Japan

Power grids in southern Japan are close to capacity for solar and wind projects as the country pushes to add stations that derive power from clean energy.

Chugoku Electric Power Co. and Kyushu Electric Power Co. each have less than 1 gigawatt of available grid capacity for solar or wind projects after deducting existing and approved capacity, according to estimates by Bloomberg New Energy Finance released yesterday.
