Broadband Tower Inc has begun construction of a 1.2MW solar power plant in Minakami-machi, Gunma Prefecture, and will start to sell electricity generated at the plant in February 2015.
Broadband Tower rented the site of a former crushing plant owned by Taiheiyo Cement Corp. The company uses a leasing scheme that Sumitomo Mitsui Finance and Leasing Co Ltd provides for solar projects.
Broadband Tower has been engaged in the development and operation of new ICT platforms by using real-time sensing of energy such as the monitoring of the amount of power generated. And the latest solar project is part of such efforts.© Japan Today
