Hokuriku Electric Starts Building 8MW Wind Power Plant in Japan

Hokuriku Electric Power Co. began construction of an 8-megawatt wind power station in the western prefecture of Fukui, the utility said in a statement Monday.

The station is being developed and will be operated by a wholly owned unit and will start running in January 2017, according to the statement. The plant will produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4,000 homes for a year.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
